Carp fishing in Creuse - France
Etang de Azat-Chatenet fishing lake in France is stocked with an excellent head of large specimen carp in pristine condition. Fishing here can be a very exciting experience not knowing which species of fish will bite next or if your next catch will be a personal best or lake record. The fish are very hard fighting, with no safe havens for them to hide and no closed off sections of the lake. There are 9 swims on the lake with a maximum number of 5 anglers permitted, all of the water can be fished to from the swims and every bank is accessible with a path all of the way around the lake. Two rowing boats are available for anglers to share. You will be safe on a secure site with English staff on hand to help if you have any problems.
The stock consists of mainly Mirror Carp with an average fish being 28lb to 34lb. In February 2020 we stocked 4 mandarin catfish, estimated weights from about 20lb to 30lb+.
