Welcome to BluesLake carp fishery, holidays for the big carp experience, a Belgian carp fishing paradise within 2 hours drive from Calais no toll roads and only two main roads to negotiate.
Blues Lake is now officially open for business. We acquired the lake in September 2002 and it has been going from strength to strength with carp to 65lb. We estimate the stock levels to be around the 400+ mark with most being over 30lb.
So what has Blues Lake got to offer, well the lake is roughly 2 hours travelling time from Calais and is around 7 acres in size, it is a fully mature lake with probably an oak tree in every swim. The main body of the lake has a large island at one end and numerous lily pads dotted around, the second part of the lake is long and ‘P’ shaped, it is joined to the main lake by means of a large cut through, thus allowing free movement for the fish. We have made ten swims on the lake but only a maximum of 6 anglers are allowed, this allows free movement for anglers if they wish to change swims or if they wish to go stalking, we like to think we have given anglers a choice. We approached our new lake in a manner that gives anglers good quality fish with the least amount of restrictions; we hope to give anglers a holiday to remember and the chance to catch that fish of a lifetime.
The carp at present go to 65lb. We also have taken many carp from surface fishing so there is a varied amount of sport for every angler. The lake varies in depth from around 1.5m to around 4m if anyone finds different let us know. The lily pads around the lake give good holding spots for the carp and virtually every swim is able to use these areas, we have also many features in open water that allow the interception of cruising carp and certain areas that the carp seem to frequent, possibly mussel beds. We rest the lake for at least six months of the year this helps maintain the lake quality and assures the fish are in A1 condition.
We have a large log cabin by the main car park which is for your use, it has all the essentials for cooking and eating plus storing bait (large chest freezer). We have a brand new cabin on site which has got two large showers and toilets new for 2013. If you need to recharge boats or phones feel free to do so. We have another cabin which is found on the other side of the lake, there is a gas cooker for you to use but there is no electric power (you are meant to be roughing it) it measures around 12 feet by 18 feet with a porch at the entrance. You can either store your equipment here or use it as a large bivvy, the choice is yours. We prefer to use it as social area for eating and having a few beers, or for you sophisticated ones a glass of wine, also a good place to tell the stories of the one that got away, sometimes they turn into long nights.
The lake is geared not only for your serious carp angler but also for those wishing to put a bend in the rod and maybe catch a fish that would other wise be out of reach in the UK. All areas are within casting range but using your water craft is a must as the fish will frequent certain spots around the lake and some we have not found yet.
There are local supermarkets about 5 minutes from the lake, which sells everything that you could buy at home, and more, so there is no need to bring big amounts of shopping with you. Close by are some good takeaway places, keeps the need to cook, down to a minimum.
