With an incredible 29 fish over 40lb , including 2 x 60b + , 4 x 50lb , 23 x 40lb + ,71 fish banked !! the average being well over 40lb + and all anglers catching fish over 40lb all round the lake !
Awesome fishing !

Forget Father Christmas, Vallee Lake is producing the Christmas goods, in the shape of some stunning Carp for some very happy anglers..

Pete Rosario & friend Zeth Christie from Basingstoke had a 20 fish haul in December Conditions - fishing only part time as they were helping on a work party and lake 2 Stocking - they teamed up and fished in a double swim ending up with over 20 fish, with this amazing HUGE 61lb Mirror pb for Pete with the biggest grin you've seen on his face. Zeth also broke his pb twice - Happy Christmas lads! 6 x 40s, 9 x 30s, 4 x 20s and an Enormous 61lber ..

Dave Jordison got his early Christmas presents in the shape of a 57lb Mirror, 2 x 40s to 47lb and 30s ..

Well done guys.

Vallee Lake 1 - Weed Clearance

Our weed clearing contractor has now been confirmed for week 26 on both Vallee Lake 1 and Lake 2.

We are hoping the weed will be minimal this year, however this precaution has been taken, and booked for this week in the event of any excessive weed present.

This would be cut and cleared from the lake within the shortest and most efficient way possible. We understand how frustrating weed can be and we think this is the best way to help you, the angler.

for any more information please contact carp-france.

All the best and tight lines, Mark & Nathalie.
