Archipelago Lake is an 8 acre lake situated in the heavily wooded countryside Nr Champeaux, France. The fishery is totally enclosed & includes its own woodland, clubhouse, shower block, Gazebo social area, well stocked smaller lake, The Blue Lagoon, car park & grassy surroundings CCTV in operation at all times. The lake consists of level gravelled swims situated between trees & shrubs, many overhanging the water. Running down the middle of the lake is a series of tree clad island broken up by a series of small channels allowing the fish to move from one side of the lake to the other whilst presenting the angler with some really attractive features to fish to. Secluded & peaceful location with the nearest road being three quarters of a mile away & no noisy nearby rail lines. There are no close neighbours unless you include farm animals. Safe & secure fenced in site. All snags are removed on a regular basis & we are proud to say no annoying little Poisson chats & very little weed. There are a few crayfish but these are never a problem. We provide a quad & trailer service to get your gear to and from your swims. No restrictions on your movements. You can come & go as you please. The owners will do everything possible to help & advise anyone on request. Conversely, if you want to be left entirely to your own devices thats fine with us, although you are strongly advised to listen. There are 2 rowing boats 1 on either side of the lake for your unrestricted use & bait boats are allowed & recommended. Additionally if you dont own a bait boat why not rent one of ours, Please enquire when booking. Most important are the actual fish stocks as they are right now. We have performed numerous netting & drain downs since our ownership most recently in late 2015 the main lake was drained completely & left for 5 months so extensive maintenance could be carried out to ensure the continued wellbeing of the lake & our beautiful fish. During this time parts of the lake have been re dug potential snags removed & the lake bed desilted which all serve to promote a healthy well balanced lake. The stock at this time consists of around 110 Carp with the majority of these being Mirror Carp, around 25% are Common Carp with one Leather Carp, 3 Grass Carp 2 Koi 1 Ghost & only 1 Catfish. Weights upon re stocking were Mirror Carp to over 60.Lbs+, Common Carp to mid 50.Lbs+. We now have many 50.Lbs+ & a good head of 40.Lbs+ with fewer 30.Lbs+ & very few high 20.Lbs+. The current records which stand under our ownership are Mirror Carp at 57.Lb .14oz Daisy, Common Carp 55.Lbs .8oz GI Jones, Grass Carp 49.Lbs.8oz & Catfish 55.Lbs. These records are all the current standing from 2015 & as we know there are carp over 60.Lbs+ & still growing we are very much looking forward to seeing these records broken next season in 2017. PLEASE NOTE. We no longer consider our fishery to be a runs water; as previously stated on the home page this is a moderate to hard water & not suitable for beginners. We are building our business on the exceptionally high amount of service we can offer & honesty & never want to be accused of overstating the assets of the fishery. We do not cherry pick for good weeks to put on our catch report pages. The results of every week when anglers are on are published on the web site. We also welcome any constructive criticism or suggestions on how we can further improve the venue or services. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM
