Facilities & Information
Lake Ruby is a 19 acre gravel pit, set in the heart of the Champaign Region in France near the small village of Martinicourt Goncourt. Approximately 3 1/2 hours drive from Calais, Ruby Lake really is in the ideal location for a french carp fishing holiday venue.
You couldn’t imagine the amount hard work that’s gone into making this french carp fishery become a reality. Frazer (the owner) and his team have really put their hearts and soles into this project and, as I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s been worth the wait. With the modern carp angler in mind from the outset, sizeable swims have been constructed around the lake to ensure maximum comfort during your weeks stay. Want to fish with a pal? Not a problem! Most swims at Lake Ruby can easily host two bivvies or shelters.
With typically 12 anglers fishing per week, you’ll certainly get your fair share of water and always have the opportunity to move swims should you wish. The draw for swims is on Saturday at 13:00 (French time). The usual amenities such as kitchen area, toilets, hot shower and washing facilities are all available on site.
Approximately 100 carp were stocked in January 2019, with the largest of the residents now weighing 56lb+. Further stockings took place during the winter of 2020 as part of an ongoing stocking programme, so it is estimated there are 200 carp in total. When you consider the natural food larders in Lake Ruby, combined with anglers additional particles, pellet and boilies, it won’t be long until these carp are packing on the pounds!
The food package is £140 per person payable upon arrival and is available from Saturday – Saturday.
