Willow lake is located in the Loire Valley in close proximity to the town of Craon. The lake is 2 hours drive from the ferry port of St Malo or 2 hours 30 mins from Caen.

It is a picturesque 2 acre lake surrounded by 8 acres of meadows. The lake is spring fed and dammed at one. The dam end is the deepest part of the lake with depths of around ten feet graduating to around four feet at the house end of the lake. The lake if surrounded by mature willow trees, silver birch, other shrubs and iris reeds giving plenty of cover for both anglers and fish.

The lake is divided into four swims and ideally suited to three anglers each with a 3 rod set up. The lake was de silted in 2002 and also virtually snag free thanks to the fishery owner. The lake bed is a mixture of gravel, sand and some silt at the shallower end so don’t forget to pack your marker rod for some underwater feature finding.

The swims have been designed to be comfortable for a bivvy and are gravel based. There is a small rowing boat available for anglers to use ‘at your own risk’.

The fishery owner stocks mainline Cell boilies and a selection of Dynamite Baits including pellets and seeds, all of which can be pre ordered.

The lake was drained and desilted in 2002. At the same time silver fish were removed and the lake bed was limed and the lake was refilled.

Some pike were added to keep down the numbers of smaller fish. Throughout the winter the fish stock are fed on pellets to maintain their growth.

In 2005 a further 8 carp were stocked ranging from 35lbs to 42lbs. In addition, 15 catfish were stocked and many smaller carp removed.
