Moorlands Fisheries A beauty..


A quieter week as far as total captures goes but the lower numbers of forties was made up for by the capture of two sixties at 63lb 0oz and 61lb 13oz. I don't think the anglers involved will mind me saying that a couple of them were more interested in the relaxing holiday than working too hard in t ....more

2013 Roundup


I have decided that it is better to give details of actual stock rather than the numbers of fish caught during 2013. My reason for making this decision is that it seems to have confused some of our customers with them thinking that the total captures were actually numbers of fish in the lake. I don' ....more

Located just south of Chalon-sur-Saone in the beautiful Burgundy countryside and surrounded by nothing but forest and fields, Moorland Fisheries is 14 acres in size and has everything the discerning carp angler could wish for. There are no railways, motorways or even main roads to disturb the tranquillity. On top of all this there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen including Buzzards, Red Kites and even the occasional Osprey.

Moorland Fisheries is a fourteen acre, three hundred year old, estate lake with wonderful surroundings to every swim. Access is excellent and all swims are level and comfortable. The depths vary from three feet in the margins and under the trees to nine feet at the dam. Features include 700 metres of forest bank with overhanging trees and three feet of water to cast to at approximately sixty yards. They do not allow fishing from the forest bank so there will never be another angler disturbing your accurately placed bait. The lake is extremely rich in natural food with a rich clay bottom and the fish are constantly evident and easy to find, by the trails of bubbles and “head and shouldering” carp all over the lake. The lake holds mirrors to mid sixty pounds, commons to fifty plus and catfish to 120 pounds plus.(3 different sixties, 16 other carp over fifty pound and over 70 different forties)

At Moorland Fisheries they do not believe in drawing for specific swims but we hold a draw at dinner on Friday evening for the order of choice of swims. As each angler arrives he will be given advice and assistance to choose his swim. This allows watercraft and good angling to produce good results. Although there are eighteen swims they limit the number of anglers to ten so everyone has room to move. They also welcome anglers to arrive on Fridays so that they can discuss the previous week’s results with the existing anglers before starting their week.

They also provide whatever help or tuition you require with Keith Moors (well known angler with 46 years carp angling experience) who is on site permanetly. All fishing is carried out from angler’s bivvies.

All fishing is carried out from angler’s bivvies but there is a dining lodge designed along “English Pub” features where English breakfasts and two course gourmet evening meals are served and these are included within the price. There is Sky TV, freezer space for bait, our own bait for sale on site, English electric sockets for charging cameras, phones etc. and English shower and toilet facilities with free hot water 24/7.

For the female non fishing guest who is looking for a little more luxury we have a pool house with bedroom and lounge and a plush, outdoor swimming pool.

We also provide whatever help or tuition you require with Keith Moors (well known carp angler with 46 years carp angling experience) on site permanently.

There is a Full English Breakfast and two course evening meal included in the price of your holiday. All meals are freshly prepared from the best ingredients available. [no boil in the bag rubbish]

We hold stocks of good quality freezer boilies and these will always be of the same flavour and quality that we use to feed the carp during the late winter and early spring. We also carry stocks of good quality pellets which the carp now recognise as a food source.
