Cheshire Lake is a 7 acre French carp lake which can accommodate up to 6 anglers during any given week.

Cheshire lake is located south of Paris in the North Eastern part of France near the town of Montereau. The lake has beautiful surroundings with the Seine-Marne and the Yonne rivers running parallel to the complex. The lake has 5 Swims (one double) and contains some very large carp, Sturgeon and predators such as Catfish thanks to the natural and rich food supply present such as crayfish and mussels, they’re everywhere!

The largest mirror is 65lb and the largest common carp exceeds 65lb+ according to recent catch reports.
