About Eden’s lakes

Carpworld - - CHILLED OUT -

Eden’s Lakes is a three lake carp fish­ing com­plex just into the La Creuse re­gion of France. Since we took own­er­ship in April 2009, it has un­der­gone some mas­sive changes in­clud­ing a to­tally new hand-picked se­lec­tion of carp stock for each lake in win­ter of 2010/2011.

Orig­i­nally we set out to cre­ate a carp fish­ing com­plex that catered for all types of carp fish­ing sit­u­a­tions, be it spec­i­men hunt­ing, ac­tion-packed runs fish­ing or gen­eral plea­sure fish­ing. That was, of course, un­til we dis­cov­ered that Eden’s Lakes is more spe­cial than we could ever have imag­ined.

Our carp fish­ing lakes have pro­duced mas­sive carp over the last sev­eral years, with Dene putting in place a bal­anced feed­ing pro­gram and has re­sulted in sig­nif­i­cant weight gains in a very short pe­riod of time, and in sev­eral cases up to and over 8lb to 10lb in one year. Dene also de­cided to max­imise the po­ten­tial within the com­plex by re­struc­tur­ing the site into a venue for big fish an­gling but also for all an­gling abil­i­ties, and on a so­cial side for sin­gle, small groups and fam­i­lies – or even ex­clu­sive book­ings with the de­sign of all the new swims on each lake.

The North Lake has been our num­ber one carp spec­i­men lake with a very high stamp of home-grown carp in ex­cess of 68lb and with sev­eral more 60lb-plus fish, and many back up 50lb-plus as well and 40lb-plus fish. The lake has now set the stan­dard for the other lakes to fol­low and with care­ful­ly­de­signed feed­ing pro­grams by Dene, along with net­tings, re­moval of nui­sance species and a re­duc­tion in the num­ber of an­glers per week, we are im­mensely con­fi­dent that the other two lakes will not be far be­hind in fu­ture years.

Si­mon’s Lake has reached our sec­ond spec­i­men lake sta­tus on the com­plex and ev­ery year the carp are grow­ing, and grow­ing into some­thing spe­cial, and is now pro­duc­ing a high av­er­age of good 30s, 40s and a few 50s too.

Whilst Jolly Pads is our bit more of an ac­tion wa­ter with plenty of rod-bend­ing ac­tiv­ity to keep you busy at times, again the stamp of fish are on the up and grow­ing ev­ery sea­son too, with a very good high-av­er­age stamp of fish ev­ery week com­ing out and, of course, our reg­u­lar stur­geon Merve to keep you en­ter­tained.

All the lakes have had com­pletely new, com­fort­able dou­ble and sin­gle swims built with bulky tim­bers and soft gravel with ex­cel­lent drainage to pro­tect your bivvies. All swims con­tain a carp cra­dle, tri­pod and weigh sling.

It is with all this in mind, that Eden’s Lakes re­ally is a place to keep your eye on and in the com­ing years we pre­dict that spa­ces/weeks will be booked up in ad­vance. For the 2017 sea­son we have added brand new toi­let and shower fa­cil­i­ties to a very high stan­dard and we are sure you will not be dis­ap­pointed.

Si­mon’s Lake is a pic­turesque tree-lined three acre lake with two large dou­bles and one sin­gle swim. The swims have all been built with bulky tim­bers and have been de­signed with good drainage in mind and topped with soft gravel, and they have no more than four an­glers per week. Si­mon’s Lake has been com­ing on very strong the last cou­ple of years with sig­nif­i­cant weight gains for its fish and is now our sec­ond spe­cial­ist lake on the com­plex. In an­other year or two this is go­ing to be a mas­sive big fish wa­ter just be­hind our North lake.

The lake is mainly a hard clay-bot­tomed lake with lumps and bumps, silt patches and gravel patches and bars, and a few over­hang­ing trees and with around 100-plus fast weight­gain­ing carp to above 55lb-plus. Si­mon’s has a fan­tas­tic stock of fish al­ready with a few new 50s com­ing through ev­ery sea­son. This cer­tainly is an up and com­ing big fish wa­ter and to make things even bet­ter for 2018 we have re­moved a few of the smaller fish that were present, and re­placed them with a fur­ther forty hand-picked carp be­tween 28½lb and 40lb to com­pli­ment the al­ready fan­tas­tic stock. - Team Eden’s Lakes
