  • Like your lakes big, wild and rewarding?

    Brocard Large 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.

    The larger of the two Brocard Lakes is 39 acres, picturesque and abundant with wildlife. It holds a good stock of carp to over 50lb and 15 sizeable catfish and you have the choice of several double swims.

    If you are looking for a serious water that contains a large average size of carp in natural surroundings, then this could be the one for you – carp fishing France in beautiful surroundings.

    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.

    This lake is relatively shallow and the bed is mainly made up of clay with a covering of silt. The average depth is around 1m and fairly even and the swims have good vehicle access via a gravel path.

    There are over-hanging trees and reed-lined margins. Mature trees hang down into the water along the forest swims creating a natural looking lake and the old branches that have fallen have been left beneath the canopy creating sanctuary areas. There can be some weed formation when the water gets warmer (end of May/June) although this is managed carefully by the lake’s bailiff Franck.

    Swim 5 is one of the larger double swims on the north end of the lake.

    Swim 6 is another large double swim located to the right of the island at around 80-100m. It’s the deepest part of the lake as it is located close to the sluice. This is where the old river bed leaves the lake – it lies close to the bank and is fairly easy to find.

    Between pegs 6 and 7 lies a small island.

    Swim 7 is located to the left side of the island which is a fairly simple cast. There’s open water to the front.

    Swim 8 has open water out to the front.

    Swims 9 and 10 are both large doubles and have large gravelled platforms built out into the water. Located on the forest side of the lake, there are marginal snags where the trees have fallen in.

    Swim 11 is at the bottom end of the lake, which gives you the southern margin to fish to.

    Swim 12 is the first swim you come to when you reach the lake. This is situated in the shallowest end of the lake, with plenty of open water directly in front of you and reed beds surrounding.

    Depending on how you prefer to fish, i.e with or without a bait boat, we suggest that swims 5, 6, 7, 9 & 12 are easy casting areas whereas swims 7, 10 and 11 have some overhanging foliage which means you may find it more difficult to cast, in this case a bait boat would be advantageous.
