Forest Lakes Tel:  

Forest lakes is a stunning 4.5 acre fishery set in its own grounds of 25 acres of limousin forestry where apart from the sound of screaming reels there is little to break the tranquillity. The lakes first came about over 70 years ago & were used like most lakes in France as stocking lakes for Trout, Over the years the demand for Trout dyed off and the lakes were left forgotten. Over the last 3 years forest lakes has gone through some changes to make it into the fishery it is today, these include the construction of a fisherman’s lodge which over looks the lake complete with shower, English toilet & kitchen to give you a few home comforts. We have also built 5 new swims around the lake which are all barked & complete with landing platforms giving the angler a comfortable place to fish from. The lakes are situated 4km from the nearest small French village which has a few shops including a bakers. General stores & of course a couple of bars & then its 12km away to the bigger town of St Junien which has a much wider range of shops including a couple of hyper markets. THE main lake is 4.5 acres & is surrounded on 3 sides by beautiful forestry it has many features including 2 large gravel bars which slope away to a generally hard bottom. The lake has pockets of silt & sand which the fish will be caught from & is weed free, It ranges in depth from 3ft to 14ft & it is spring fed from 3 springs giving it exceptional water quality through out the year. The smaller lake of just over an acre is mainly used as a stock lake though there are Carp in it to over 25.lbs+ & there is a good head of Roach & Perch should you wish to fish for them. THE Carp were first introduced to the water around 40 years ago but in the last 3 years we have stocked it with over a 120 fish to over 50.lbs+ including 70 fish up and over the 30.lbs mark & the rest 20.lbs+ The biggest out last season was 51.lbs. The fish are all Royal Strain Carp & from the comments we have had back from anglers some of the best looking fish they have seen & fighting fit. There are also a few tangerine Cats which we introduced 2 years ago & to date they have not been banked though a few anglers have reported losing them we are not sure of the weights now but would expect them to be in the 60.lbs+ region. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM
