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.
