About Eden’s Lakes
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 that took place in the 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 lakes have produced massive fish over the last several years, with Dene putting in place a balanced feeding program which has produced 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 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 – achieved by Dene’s balanced feeding, 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 into something special. It is now producing high-average sized fish of 30lb, 40lb and a few 50-pounders too. In the winter of 2017/2018 we increased our stock with a further 40 carp between 30lb and 40lb to complement the already existing stock. We have also recently added new shower and toilet facilities, constructed to a very high standard, and we are sure guests will not be disappointed.
Whilst Jolly Pads is our social-type water with plenty of rodbending action to keep anglers busy, again the stamp of fish are on the up and growing every season too with a very good high average stamp of fish, plus, of course, our regular bank-visiting sturgeon Merve to keep you entertained.
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 – and we predict that spaces/weeks will be booked up well in advance.
