Firs Lake is a beautiful 2 1/2 acre lake in the heart of rural France.
The land is surrounded by Laurel hedges and a huge variety of mature trees including stunning fir trees. With its own island and many trees creating fish holding overhangs, as well as marginal reeds, weed patches and lily pads providing a variety of natural features.
The lake has 3 sensibly spaced, good sized gravel swims, plus access around the entire lake, giving plenty of options and unlimited stalking potential.
It has an average depth of 4-6ft with a clay and gravel bottom and some large areas of silt that the carp love.
Firs Lake Swims
BBQ Bay (House Swim)
BBQ Bay (also referred to as the House Swim) is a beautiful swim, cunningly named due to its idyllic location right in front of the house. A real social swim and the shallower end of the lake, where the carp love to show during hot summer days. Perfectly placed to allow you to continue to fish while you prepare those all important early evening BBQ’s.
The Laurels is a superb swim and has been known to produce excellent catches from the right hand margin and reed bed, as well as the toward the back of the island. This end of the lake is deepest and is a much clearer area where the lake bed tends have many fine gravel patches.
Carp Corner has an huge amount of water to target, the back of the island, along the margins, and the deeper water out in front proving very popular with Carp often crashing out in open water day and night.
Firs Lake Map :
The lake contains a number of known 40lb+ carp and a good head of extremely highly hard fighting catfish to over 75lb.
In November 2007 Firs was restocked by the previous owners with locally reared Carp from a fish farmer in nearby Pouance, introducing up to 80 fish from 15lb – low 40’s. An excellent head of large Catfish to over 75lbs help to control the smaller spawned fish. The former owners also added a further 60 carp up to low 40′s in late 2011.
Throughout the year the fish at Firs Lake are fed on premium grade low oil pellets. The Carp and Cats LOVE these pellets, which are used by many fish farmers throughout France and UK.
Without doubt we highly recommend buying a sack of house pellet from us for your trip – please ask when you book.
