Carp Fishing In France

Cretelakes is a beautiful 5 lake venue set in 130 acres. The lakes are former gravel pits dug around the mid 1970s and around this time they were stocked with carp and other course fish.

The venue was left undisturbed to flourish and mature with its tree lined banks and stocks of fish for three decades, we secured the lakes and set about creating a carp fishing holiday complex that would be one of the best in France . After six months of tree removal and other obstacles 60 swims were created including 9 doubles across the 5 lakes. As the years passed the lakes were stocked with fast growing French carp including many 40lb+ fish and at present Cretelakes can boast some of the heaviest stocked lakes in France with literally hundreds of carp over 40lb and 50lb, many 60s and the biggest residents over 70lb that are still growing year on year, Lake 5 alone holds over six hundred 30lb+ Carp so with stocking level of this calibre Cretelakes is a firm favourite amongst anglers.

The onsite facilities at Cretelakes are excellent with a fully equipped kitchen, a large seating area with sky TV, a shop stocking those essential items including a large stock of bait, and a shower block housing 3 showers and 3 toilets. The showers are open 24 hours a day and can be used at your own convenience. There is also a toilet block located between lakes 3 and 4, there is a disabled toilet in the main clubhouse.
