Old Pollard Lake, an idyllic carp fishing holiday venue just 220 miles from Calais. This 7 acre private lake is located in the French Ardennes-region and has only 3 swims with lakeside accommodation. This makes Old Pollard Lake a perfect venue to visit with friends, family and non-anglers. With carp up to 50lb+ and with an average weight of almost 30lb Old Pollard Lake is a beautiful location to spend your holiday! Old Pollard Lake has only 3 swims and every swim has his own accommodation with electricity. Swim 1 features a 4-person caravan and can be booked by one angler fishing with 3 rods. A perfect swim to bring your family or friends.
Swim 2 has a 4-person chalet and like swim 1, is this a perfect swim to bring family or friends.
Swim 3: At swim 3 it is possible to fish with 2 anglers and has a 2-person cabin. Perfect for two friends and for the colder months.
We allow only 4 anglers on 7 acres. This means that every angler has enough space and privacy. Every swim is accessible by car, so you don’t have to bring any barrows! The carp on Old Pollard Lake feed most of the year on boilies. Besides boilies they feed on small crayfish, snails and mussels. In the shallow parts of the lake where the bottom is a bit softer you will also find some bloodworms in the mud. Because the carp have a lot of natural food all year long, the growth ratio is superb! The banks of the lake are overgrown by plants and trees so you can enjoy nature at all time.
There is a big variety in the carp stock at Old Pollard Lake. Jos, the owner, estimates over 150 carp between the 20lb+ and 50lb+. 3 different carp are caught over 45lb (2 commons and a mirror carp). Around 25 carp are over 35lb and the average carp weighs around 30lb. Old Pollard Lake also holds 3 koi and a few grass-carp, bream and Tench. With this decent stock is it possible to catch a few nice carp during your fishing holiday!
