What customers say about carp fishing in France at Anjou Lake, including their catch reports and general comments.

Steve Tovey

Cold Week in November

By Steve Tovey on 9 November 2019

Good lake and facilities, but would be a squash if more than 4 anglers on lake. An outdoor seating area with cover would be good all year round.

Fishing Tactics: Tried everything, but fish switched off and no further luck (after Sunday).

Carp - 37lb, 31lb 12oz and 24lb 8oz (all caught on Sunday).

Nigel Powell

Good Facilities

By Nigel Powell on 2 November 2019

Facilities have all you need for the week, local supermarket only 10 mins drive (SuperU). Lodge good and clean with lots of hot water. May take 2 or 3 years to take off, but one for the future.

Fishing Tactics: Wafters and plastics worked best.

18 Carp: 3 x 40s to 49lb 2oz, 10 x 30s, 4 x 20s and 1 x 10lb.

David Kay


By David Kay on 26 October 2019

Excellent - everything here that you need. Weather very up and down. Fish showing all over the lake.

Fishing Conditions and Tactics: In atrocious weather conditions, yellow pop ups worked best.

Catch: 1 x 48lb 5oz, 2 x 30s and 1 x 20.

David Biagioni

Good Lake and Facilities

By David Biagioni on 19 October 2019

Good lake and facilities.

Fishing Tactics: Fish came on boilies. Fishing slow - lots of weed, but plenty of places to get a rod in.

1 x 40, 6 x 30s, 2 x 20s and 1 x 17lb.

Glenn Lack

More Needed In Facilities

By Glenn Lack on 12 October 2019

Facilities are fine, but outside table and chairs, more kitchen utensils and an oven glove would be nice. Flies can be an issue, so a fly catcher would be a thought. BBQ was too small for 4 anglers, but sorted quickly by fishery owner. Too many low 20s. Swim 8 in our opinion should not be there as it cut off 1 - 7.

Fishing Tactics: Yellow pop ups.

20 carp: 5 x 40s, 7 x 30s (1 grass) and 8 x 20s.

John London

Facilities Great

By John London on 5 October 2019

Facilities are great - plenty of hot water and cabin all you need. Potentially a fantastic venue. Water levels really low and crays present, but not a problem. Not a runs water and more fish needed to increase catch rates and competition for food. High average weight of fish caught.

Weed not a problem - fish in it. Local restaurant (White Pidgeon) really good for lunch and only 13 Euros. We would come back in a couple of years, once the lake has matured.

Fishing Tactics: Heavy baiting not necessary. Fish for a bite at a time. Fish started feeding on beds of bait, but then to solid bags. Pop ups and wafters caught all fish.

4 x 40s, 1 x 20 and 1 under 20lb.

Jonathan Pool

Facilities Excellent

By Jonathan Pool on 28 September 2019

Facilities excellent - for up to 4 anglers very good, any more and it's difficult to eat together or sit at the same time. Difficult to see how two sets of anglers could share one kitchen area. A lot of weed and crayfish can be cut down. Lake more suitable for 4 anglers. More remote than most for supplies, small supermarkets - useful to know beforehand.

Fishing Tactics: pop ups.

1 x 39lb 5oz mirror and 1 x 28lb 2oz mirror.

Jon Griffin

Fishing Slow

By Jon Griffin on 21 September 2019

Lake very weedy and fishing slow - Laurent very helpful at clearing weed to fish out. Very good facilities.

Fishing Tactics: Single boilie bag with corn hook bait caught a 34lb mirror and a 23lb common.

Steve Tovey & Tam Quigley

Very Good Stay

By Steve Tovey & Tam Quigley on 31 August 2019

Very good stay. Nice peaceful surroundings and excellent facilities with everything you need. Had a great time and fishing was very good.

Fishing Tactics: Using bait boat - pink wafters over particle beds worked best.

17 Carp: 1 x 40 (grass), 6 x 30s (1 grass) and 10 x 20s.

Joshua Kneale

Good Time

By Joshua Kneale on 10 August 2019

Had a good time. Good facilities and shower good - everything you need. Caught a lot of fish, just couldn't catch the big girls.

Fishing Tactics: Fish holding up in the weed down in the shallows during the day and they move up the lake during the night. Yellow wafter over a mix of particles worked best.

1 x 45lb, 1 x 37lb, 7 x 20s and 3 under 20lb.
