    Brocard Small is situated within picturesque woodlands in the Champagne region of France, created and run by the prominent fish farming Bachelier family. The complex consists of 2 lakes, Brocard Large and Small.

    This is the slightly smaller of the two Brocard Lakes & it is long and thin in shape, encompassing around 29 acres (not exactly small at all then!). It holds a good stock of incredible looking carp to well over 50lb & catfish to 110lb.

    Four swims (all doubles) are spread along the length of the water. This is some of the best carp fishing France has to offer. Swims are booked in advance at Brocard so you’ll need to decide which swim you’d like when you book. If you can’t decide give us a call – we’ll be happy to help.

    The first three swims run down the south bank, with swim 4 on the eastern end, providing plenty of water per angler and eliminating the worry of snagging other’s lines. A gravel path provides good vehicle access to the pegs and all the swims are doubles. You can drive your vehicle to the swim to unload but it must be returned to the designated parking spots afterwards.

    With a maximum depth of 2m, the fairly even lake bed is clay with a top layer of silt. Main features are over-hanging trees and reed-lined margins.

    Swim 1 is the shallowest swim with reed beds and a small patch of lillies to the left with overhanging trees along the far margin. Catch reports show it’s very productive during the warmer months. This is a double swim.

    Swim 2 is built a couple of metres out into the water, with gravelled space directly behind for your bivvy. Depths to the front average 1m and the far margin is a cast of 140m and is scattered with overhanging trees and snags. However if you are able to cast to within 20m of it you can be in luck as there are often numbers of carp held up in that area. The fallen tree in the near margin to the right is an area that tends to hold carp and resident catfish. This is a double swim.

    Swim 3 is built out slightly into the lake. This is where most anglers set up their rod pods, etc whilst their bivvies sit in a much larger sheltered and shady clearing just behind the track with direct view of your rods. It has dead trees along the far margin at a range of 80-100m and is a popular swim that produces lots of fish. This is a double swim.

    Swim 4 is located centrally on the dam wall. Being the only swim on this side of the lake it covers a lot of water, particularly great when the wind is blowing easterly towards that end. Again it’s spacious, level and gravelled. The main features are the marginal tree line and dead tree that protrudes out from the far margin. This is a double swim.
