Brothers Lake was dug in the 1950’s and covers an area of 5.5 acres. The current owners purchased the lake in 2014 and will be opening for their first full season in 2019. Not opening the lake for the first four years has enabled the venue to grow on the fish in a safe environment, with no stress from angling while they develop the lake and facilities.
The lake bed is composed of clay and sand, with a few areas of silt and no snags. Depths range from a couple of feet at the inlet end to around twelve feet at the dam end. The banks have been planted with a great variety of trees, shrubs and wild flowers including Willows, Birches, Common and Italian Alders, Pines, Broom, Iris and Purple-loosestrife. A natural spring which runs year round feeds the lake via a stream, providing a good, constant supply of quality water.
There are five swims to choose from, so even with the maximum of four anglers present there is always a swim free to move to. Each swim is large enough for a bivvy, rods and an unhooking mat, making life easy for the angler.
For those who angle stealthily, the fish can be caught from just a few feet off the bank, especially during the hours of darkness.
There are no nuisance species and the crayfish will pose little or no problems while you enjoy your week of carp fishing in France.
Brothers Lake lies in the beautiful Limousin countryside in the central west region of France. Famous for its blue and white porcelain, the city of Limoges is just thirty minutes away. The surrounding area has plenty of sights to see and things to do, if you can prise yourself away from the fishing for long enough.
Situated in the Haute-Vienne department, the weather is warm for much of the year and can experience long hot summers on a regular basis. Perfect for a week of carp fishing in France! The lake itself lies in a conservation area and relies solely on an off grid supply.
The emphasis at Brothers Lake has been on developing a fantastic looking stock of fish in a brilliant little venue, catering more for the seasoned carp angler than the holiday maker. There are no luxuries with regard to facilities and the focus is the fishing itself.
If you like dinner cooked for you, WiFi in your swim and Sky TV when you go fishing, this may not be the venue for you. If on the other hand you enjoy fishing small intimate venues where a little thinking and a bit of stealth makes all the difference, then there are some truly stunning looking carp to fish for.
The lake also attracts a plethora of birds and wildlife to keep the nature lovers content. Amongst the species you may see are wild boar, deer, pine martins, red squirrels, ospreys and Montague’s Harriers to name but a few.
