Drive and Survive Carp Fishing in France near Calais.
Pegasus Lake 1 is a drive and survive carp fishery located in the Champagne region of France at roughly 3.5 hours drive form Calais.
Facilities & Information
Pegasus Lake 1 is 30 acre gravel pit which was dug around 2007 and has everything you’d expect from a gravel pit including depths ranging from 8-12 feet and features such as gravel bars, plateaus, hard spots, weed and some siltier areas.
There are 7 double swims and 2 spacious single swims and is for a maximum of 12 anglers with parking available behind your hired swim or in the car park.
It’s estimated the total stock of Pegasus Lake 1 is between 1000 – 1200 carp. The lake record is currently a common carp of 53lb 8oz.
The lake was originally stocked by the farmer shortly after the lake was dug. During the winter of 2019 around 800 locally farmed carp up to 42lb were then added. An additional 60 – 80 hand picked scaly mirror carp were then added bringing the total stock to approximately 1000 carp. During the winter of 2022/23 a further 10 35lbers were also stocked.
An extensive feeding program has been carried out since the carp were stocked, this is proving to be a great success as all carp that are being caught currently are up in weight, in immaculate condition and are unbelievable hard fighting fish. Currently the lake shows no signs of cat fish, Poisson chat or cray fish presence.
A draw will take place when you arrive at the lake and will be done fairly by means of pulling a number out of a hat.
