The Farm Lake is in the Aube region, about a four-hour drive from Calais with carp to over 64lbs. The lake is about 52 acres, can accommodate up to 16 anglers and it is set into 70 acres of beautiful land. The lake used to be a quarry where sand and stone was extracted from 1997 to 2010. Whilst excavating, there were large areas of clay found which were left, this has given the lake plenty of features for the fish to explore. There are plenty plateaus, bays and bars that can be located if you are willing to make the effort. Due to the size of this lake, we do recommend that you bring an echo sounder and a leisure battery for our rental boats. The echo sounder is, of course, not necessary, but it will help you fish as accurately as possible.
The local village is only 1km away and has all the amenities you’ll need during your stay, including a lovely restaurant, bar, bakery, pharmacy and a small shop. There is also a bigger town 10 minutes down the road if you need a supermarket during your stay.
Father and son team, Peter and Denny who own the lake, fished the lake extensively over 14 nights landing some exceptional carp. Most of these weighed between 20-40lbs, so this lake already had an excellent stockpile of exciting fish. Since then 100 new fish have been added. These were added in 2014 and their size ranged from 20-40lb. In 2015, anther 100 carp were stocked and in December of 2017 a further 80 fish. This brings the total amount of carp in The Farm Lake to 450. The current fish record for The Farm Lake is a mirror carp of 64lb and a common of 57lbs. We are confident that these records will be broken time and time again as the fish continue to pack on the weight. Will you be the one to break them?
There are 15 swims on the lake, many of these are double swims. They are simple, but comfortable and perfect for a long day and night fishing. There is an access track to all the swims, and there is also a lodge.

There are currently 475 carp in The Farm Lake that we know of. The fish that were added into the lake were added at a weight of between 20-40lbs and have grown on in weight year on year and now there is a fantastc head of 40s and 50s with mirrors of 60lb 12ozs and a beautiful 64lb 10ozs.
The Farm Lake also has pike, zander, perch, roach, rudd, grass carp, bream and more.
The lodge is very comfortable; it has a shower, toilet, a kitchen with everything you need for a hot meal and charging points. A full bait service is available to our anglers as well a carp mats and boat hire.
The lake owners have worked hard to develop boilies that help maintain the carp’s health and help them to grow throughout the season. These are now the recognised food source for the carp, and they really love them! To go with the bottom baits you can also purchase matching pop-ups, wafters as well as hardened hookbaits.
