Carpspots – Karpervissen in Frankrijk

Etangs de Breton

Etangs de Breton contains no fewer than 5 lakes on a private estate in North-West France. Birches Lake is one of those lakes. All lakes contain a nice head of mirror and common carp with weights up to 20 kg+ (average 10-15 kg) but also beautiful catfish up to 60 kg! Each lake of the complex can only be booked exclusively and has its own facilities. All lakes have their natural food sources and are continuously supplied with fresh running water. Every lake is surrounded by forest so the other lakes are not visible and you have a perfect private environment for fishing!  The entire complex is owned and run by the famous carp angler and writer Paul Selman.

Birches Lake

Birches Lake is considered by many to be the most beautiful lake on the complex, and the first glimpse of the water from the dam has been described by many visitors as ‘simply amazing.’ Birch Lake is a long lake with beautiful overhanging birch trees on the other side. A very attractive lake, and one of the most peaceful and private lakes in France. Besides fishing you can also enjoy kingfishers, birds of prey, red squirrels, and many songbirds.
In Birches Lake, carp can weigh up to 20 kg, many of which are beautiful large mirrors. The carp are often caught against the other side under the overhanging trees. In addition there are also numerous catfish cruising around averaging 27 kg and the lake record stands at no less than 60 kg!

A bait boat is certainly advisable to ensure that your bait is placed under the trees where the fish are. There is also a rowing boat for those who do not have access to a bait boat.

On Birches Lake you have access to a private mobile home which is also suitable for a small family and is close to the lake. The chalet has electricity and hot and cold running water and consists of a bedroom with a double bed, a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove and oven, microwave, fridge, fridge / freezer and storage cupboards. The living / dining room offers a double bed-sofa, tables and chairs, English Freeview TV with DVD, CD player etc. The bathroom has a shower, toilet and sink. There is a barbecue area just outside the mobile home complete with garden furniture, overlooking the water.

    Eagle Lake & Peter’s Pool are seen as one “package deal” which can only be booked exclusively. The lakes are next to each other and are therefore perfect for anglers who would like to combine the fishing on Eagle Lake with some stalking action on Peter’s Pool. Eagle Lake is the largest of the two, surrounded by forest and bushes, with a beautiful islet. The average weight is around 12 kg and the biggest carp are weighing up to 20 kg. You can also catch catfish up to 36 kg here. There are 2 landscaped swims with gravel and each located on one side of the island.  Also Peter’s Pool (named after a retired bayliff) has two landscaped gravel swims. 

    The chalet is located about 45 meters from Peter’s Pool. It consists of a living room / kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe, the bathroom has a sink, toilet and hot shower.
    The living space is equipped with a double sofa bed, table and chairs, a small kitchen sink with storage cupboards, fridge, freezer, gas hob and oven, microwave, toaster, English TV Freeview.
