  • The Villefond carp are growing and growing fast! The average carp is now in the forties, there are at least 8 known carp over the magic 50lb barrier and the biggest resident was last caught at over 65lb.

    However, Villefond is not a runs water; it’s a serious big fish water and the carp wise up quickly so they will test your angling skills… but get your presentation right, encourage the fish to feed confidently, and you will experience some amazing and memorable carp fishing.

    If targeting large carp in beautiful surroundings is your goal then it’s definitely a venue that you should visit for your carp fishing in France.

    First introduced to the carp fishing public in 2008, the complex is completely secure and can be found down a little used country road in a very tranquil corner of France. Motorway links are excellent and the drive down from Calais is just over 5 hours, or around 3½ hours from St Malo.

    The lake is a mature 8 acres which has been a fishery since the 1930’s. It has good access to all pegs, with 7 purpose built swims, including one double, for a maximum of 6 anglers. The margins with their over-hanging trees and shrubs are definitely not to be ignored; they are really productive fish holding areas. There’s also a tree lined island which is reachable from most swims.

    The lake is largely snag free open water and the hard clay bottom varies from 1 to 5 metres with only a small amount of silt in the deeper water.

    There are crayfish present (that’s why the carp grow so big!) but with the modern angling techniques of skinning boilies with heat shrink tube and meshing baits these will not cause you problems. Go prepared, there’s lots of information on our Blog on how to combat them.
