The Farm Lake and Map
The lake is 52 acres set in 70 acres of land, the extraction of sand and stone was started in 1997 and was finished in 2010. Whilst excavating the lake large areas of clay were found and left which has left plenty of features to fish. Including a large plateau with an average depth of 5 foot and covers a surface area of 4 acres. There are also humps, bars, bays and plateaus to fish all over the lake. As there are so many features we certainly recommend you bring an echo sounder outboard and leisure battery to accompany our rental boats, (A Life Jacket must be worn at all times whilst on the water.) The echo sounder is not a necessity but will help you fish as confidently and accurately as possible.
There are 15 swims in which all but one are double swims, these are comfortable with plenty of water to fish. We have made a car access track to all the swims and the lodge has toilet/shower, a kitchen with a fridge, freezer and charging points for your use.
The lake is situated in the Aube region around 4 hours drive from Calais and the local village is 1 km away and has amenities such as a restaurant, small shop, bar, tabac, bakery and a pharmacy. A 10 minutes drive and you will be in a larger town which has supermarkets etc. A full bait service is available (boilies, pellet and particles. Row boat hire and the chance to rent mats.
No permits are required and the lake has legal night fishing.
