Lake Bleu draws its name from the woodland backdrop that fills with wonderful bluebells in April every year! Feature laden, and accommodating five anglers, there are gravel bars, an island, overhanging trees and beautiful lily patches to fish out to.

Fish stocks are larger than those you would normally find in the UK or most of France for that matter. This lake is renowned for the quality and quantity of fish that can be landed. The average weight is over 78lbs, the lake record is a huge 121.5lbs and weekly catches of over 2300lbs are not uncommon.

During a lake drain a catfish of an estimated weight between 140 and 160lbs was lifted out of the net by three people. It was deliberately not weighed, and is now known between anglers as ‘The Red October’.

At least seven different specimen over 100lbs were caught and landed from Bleu in one season. This doesn’t include the ever illusive ‘Red October’

We allow a maximum of six people to holiday on this lake, with five anglers fishing on the lake at any one time (12 rods maximum). You have the sole use of the lake, along with the lakeside cabin, which contains a gas supply, cooker, food fridge, separate bait fridge, cooking utensils (pots and pans etc), crockery and a sink. We also provide you with a picnic bench and table.

Also included in the price is a rowing boat along with weigh slings, weighing equipment, and unhooking mats for all swims. Gloves are also provided which we recommend you use, but if it’s a landing net you prefer please bring these with you as these are not provided.

For any verified 100lb+ Catfish, anglers win a bottle of fizz or a free full English breakfast!
