French Waters Details
Etang de Janine Tel:  

Set in the heart of the Loire valley, Etang de Janine is only 3 hours from port the lake is a mature 60 year old tree lined 18 acre gravel pit that is bordered by other lakes, maize fields & nearby flows the petit loir river. France does not get any more picturesque than this & has an abundance of wildlife which includes, wild boar, deer, lizards, herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers in fact the list is endless with hatfuls of birds of prey, owls & miles & miles of farm land. The nearest city is 30 miles away so you dont even have light pollution sit at night & look up at the stars fantastic. The bank side is mowed regularly beautiful little flowers planted trees kept plush & as we find a snag in the lake it is removed. Some of the swims are natural grass that goes down to the waters edge some are cut out & edged off with railway sleepers. Because we are down in the valley there is normally a breeze coming from somewhere & if not there are enough trees to shelter under when things warm up. There is a locked gate & the lake is fenced off you can park your car behind every swim so no mile hike with your tackle the only vehicles we get here are the tractors out in the fields. With no factories smells or noises. Peace & tranquillity is permanently at hand. Lake we have had some wonderful fish our lake depths vary from a general 10ft all over with cuts that go to 13ft, shelves that come up to 7ft the end by the shower & toilet have just received a good planting of lilies the corner stays around 3 to 5ft until you get to 40ft out where it drops down to 13ft then comes up on a bar the other side goes to 10ft. Plumbing with a rod is worthwhile you do need to think a little about your fishing here its not a supermarket type lake. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM
