Trident Lakes Swims

Anglers can choose to fish right in front of the chalet or anywhere around the lakes. It is possible for anglers to fish back-to-back on the carp and cat lakes.

Both lakes have hard bottoms and some silty areas. The depths shown in the photo are at high water levels. Like many French lakes, the levels can drop by up to 18 inches if there is a long dry summer. Trident Lakes have plenty of depth to cope with this.

On 3rd January 2019, the carp lake was stocked with 80 virgin carp carp in readiness for its first fishing season. The stock weights were 2 x 40s, 18 x 30s and 60 x 20s.

We would recommend Trident Lakes. It is an excellent lake, except power kept cutting out and the generator was faulty. Suggestions – Pegs could do in the improvement and access to the lake for baits boats and in hooking netting fish.
Many thanks and good luck for the future.

Cabin facilities are excellent with a plentiful supply of hot water. Lovely setting but close to town amenities. We would recommend Bigot Lakes. Guiliany was very helpful -thank you.

Garry and Josh Elms 21st August 2021

Excellent Facilities
Facilities are excellent. Trident Lake needs work to level out bank sides due to tyre grooves all the way around. Although the fishing as slow, we all enjoyed our stay.
Fishing Tactics: Single pop up on Ronnie & snowman.
10 Fish: 7 Carp – 2 x 30s, 5 x 20s and 3 tench (8 to 10lb)

Graham Burn on 1 August 2020

Lovely place and nicest looking of the Bigot Lakes. Cabin all you need and plenty of hot water. Fridge and freezer great. Will come back in a couple of years, but more fish needed as a struggle at times for bites. Another barrow is needed – takes too long to move all the gear. Bring bite cream – were bitten most nights.
Fishing Tactics: All baits caught. Fish margins using plenty of feed. Most fish caught at night – really struggled for bites during the day.
15 Fish: 11 carp – 1 x 50, 2 x 30s and 8 x 20s. 4 tench 3 to 4lb.

John London and Glen James on 25 July 2020

Facilities are great. Fishing was slow in the daytime due to really hot weather and high pressure. The fishing will be better in cooler weather conditions.
Fishing Tactics: Fished to left and rear margins early morning and late evening. Pop ups worked best.
24 Fish: 7 x 30s, 16 x 20s and 1 x 55lb catfish

Alan Wheatley on 11 July 2020

Facilities good. Lake side needs attention lots of over hanging trees. Slipped bank two of us slipped and fell. Enjoyed the peace and quiet but needs some TLC. But I have fished lots of lakes in France (Bigot Lakes included) and I am sure next year you will be fully booked.
Fishing Tactics :
Pop ups.
Catches :
13 in total, comprising 3 x 30’s to 37lb 12oz, 7 x 20’s to 25lb, 2 tench (5 and 6lb), 1 pike 7lb.
