Lake Exclusive Carp Fishing Holidays in France.

Lac du Marne is a mature tree lined 40 acre lake and holds approximately 400 carp to 60lbs.

Facilities & Information

Lac du Marne is just over 3 hours drive from Calais and is available for exclusive bookings. The lake has 2 swims and can be fished by 2 anglers. All swims have lots of room for the anglers and are flat with wood chip covering the ground and include a picnic table. A short walk from the lake are hot showers, toilets.

Lac du Marne is approximately 16-hectare (40 acres) in size and offers anglers a unforgettable fishing experience. Zodiac boats are available to hire at £10.00 for 24 hours. The boats are ideal for locating spots and baiting up. Crayfish and water snails are present in the lake.

During the winter of 2023 there were approximately 400 carp stocked ranging in size from mid doubles to 22lb. This was a welcome injection of new fish to supplement the existing stock, some of which already weigh up to 60lb+.

Due to the size of the venue and the low stock of approximately 10 fish per acre this is not a lake for beginners. If you are an experienced angler looking for a challenge, tranquility and a breathtakingly natural environment then Lac du Marne is for you.

There is secure parking at the bailiffs house. Your fishing equipment is transported to the lake using a quadbike and trailer meaning there’s no need to barrow your gear to the swims.
