Bills Lake 1
The average depth of this lake is 10 feet, with a bottom of silt and gravel. There is no weed to speak of and no hidden snags to catch you out, making the fishing enjoyable. Although the bottom is uniform you can find little drop offs and gravel bars where the fish tend to be caught from. Near one end there is an island where many fish feed. The lake is fully fenced and secure and we are on hand daily either at the lake or on the telephone 24/7 should you need any assistance. We like to feel we offer a more "personal touch" to your fishing holiday.
Bills Lake 2
At 3.75 acres and with an average depth of 10 feet this lake is weed free and very intimate for carp fishing France. Groups who are loud and noisy often suffer, with those who are more "water wise" catching the better bags of fish. The lake is let on an “exclusive use basis” with a maximum of 4 anglers fishing at any one time.
Bills Lake 3
Big carp fishing in France on Bill’s Lake 3. The swims are set along one bank with the facing bank being out of bounds. This causes a natural haven for the fish with multiple catches coming from its' margin. This lake bursts into life in very early spring and continues well into December with the fish showing themselves frequently. No problems in locating them at all! As with Bill's Lake 1, fishing Bill's Lake 3 offers the angler a chance to fish the mighty River Marne.
Bills Lake 4
A lovely social lake, with both double swims on the same bank. The central positioning of the two swims allows you to be close to each other but also gives you plenty of your own water to fish in. Lake 4 has a maximum depth of 15 feet with a few plateaux and drop offs to fish to and deep margins of over 6 feet. Our deepest lake out of the five. The lake is set in mature tranquil surroundings but is only a few minutes’ drive from the shops and Hypermarket. Positioned on either side of the cabin the two double swims have plenty of room behind them and vehicles can be parked close by.
Bills Lake 5
Lake 5 is an exciting lake stuffed full of fish to give you some "action" during your holiday. This lake has already a "myth" fish of 62lb 7oz but we'll have to wait and see if that's true!. The lake currently hold mirror carp to over 53lb, commons to over 51lb and grassies to over 40lb making this lake ideal for newcomers to France as well as the more experienced anglers wanting a good bend in their rods.
