French Carp Lakes with 80lb Carp.
We’re delighted to announce Leon Lake is open for pre-bookings and will be accepting customers from April 2022.
Facilities & Information
The lake is 30 acres in size, has 14 swims and a maximum of 12 anglers during any given week, meaning you’ve got plenty of water to fish and there’s always got the option to move swims.
The lake contains many carp with roughly a third of the stock ranging from 45lb to 80lb+. The lake record is an 81lb common (37kg) which is backed up by a 77lb common (35kg). There are also half a dozen 65lb+ carp (30kg+) and numerous 20kg fish.
On site you’ll find a toilet, warm shower, secure parking, sockets for recharging batteries, freezer facilities and one of the best food packages available in France. There is easy vehicle access all around the lake which makes the task of setting up or changing swims that little bit easier.
Leon lake was excavated over 60 years ago and is surrounded by 50 acres of land which makes for a relaxing and comfortable fishing environment. The lake has an average depth of 8 feet (2.5 meters) down to 20 feet (6 meters) in some places and has many other features including the islands, shallow areas, plateaus, overhanging trees and more…
