etang 52

bivvy only

We would like to introduce you to our new lake Etang 52.

The lake is 52 acres set in 70 acres of land. Sand and stone began to be extracted in 1993 and half the lake was created, in 2009 work started on extracting the remainder of the lake and it was completed 2013.

Whilst excavating the lake large areas of clay were found and left which has left plenty of features to fish including a large plateau with an average depth of 5 foot and covers a surface area of 4 acres. There are also humps, bars, bays, tree lined margins and plateaus to fish all over the lake.

Together my Father, Son and I managed to test fish for 14 nights catching some great condition original carp. Many of which were 20-40lb so this lake already has a great original stock. Speaking to a local angler, Renald,  who works close to the lake and has fished it in the past has caught fish to 23kg = 50.8lb. Big originals... result!

With that in mind we thought a few extra fish was needed to create a bit of competition so 100 new fish ranging from 20-45lb were added November 2014. These fish have shown great weight gains throughout 2015 and settled in very well. An on going stocking program is in place so this year a further 100 fish were also stocked in December 2015. 

We estimate a total of 350 fish are currently in the lake and a further 100 will increase the catch rate and take the population up to 450 fish.

There are 15 swims in which many are double swims. These are comfortable and have plenty of room to fish. There is an access track to all the swims and a Lodge which has a well equipped kitchen with 24hr electricity all for your use. Also a trailer with a toilet and shower.

The lake is situated in the Aube region and the river Seine runs not too far from the lake therefore its in the famous valley of the Seine. A 4 hour drive from Calais and you will be at the lake. The local village is 1 km away and has amenities such as a pizza restaurant, small shop, bar, bakery and a pharmacy. 10 minutes drive and you will be in a larger town which has supermarkets etc..

A full bait service is available including boilies, pellet and particles, which will be prepared and ready for your use. Rowing boat hire (your own life jackets must be used) and the chance to rent Large carp mats.
