Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
The lake was extremely peggy. All carp came from the corner of the lake closest to the river to 1 angler. Not a single carp seen in the rest of the lake. The carp all fell to 7ft Zig rigs with small bits of black foam. The catfish were caught on chod rigs.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes, absolutely perfect and everything we required. Everything was very clean and well looked after.
Were you happy with them?
Yes absolutely!
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes, would advise them to go later in the year though when the carp are more active and spread around the lake.

Yes

General comments:
We arrived to find that the water levels had risen 3meters in the previous week and continued for another meter while we were there, this along with daytime temps 17-18 degrees then waking up with frosty bivvys did not help the fishing , nothing seemed to work but I believe this was due to conditions outside of our control, Bernard and Sophie are very friendly and approachable owners and we will be back again soon

Details of your catches:
2 20s, 3 30s to 38 and 10-12 bream which was a bit of a pain

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
I found small patches of bait to be best tactic boilies or particle . I used pop ups to begin with but as the week went on I found bottom baits to be best .

General comments:
I found it a little tricky as most of the fish were held up in one corner of the lake. Out of 7 takes I only had takes off of one rod which I found a little strange as my other two rods were fished about 8 ft to the right and left of the middle with same tactics but I suppose that's winter fishing for you

General comments:
Would have to agree a previous anglers comment regarding catfish problem and how they are starting to dominate. The owner is tackling the issue by placing a large retaining net for anglers to place catfish in for the owner to remove. For each catfish we placed in the retainer he rewarded us with a bottle of champagne which we thought was a nice touch.

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes was my fourth trip to this lake
Were you happy with them?
Yes,shower still not right although Bernard tried to get it sorted but still was not right when we left

*Angling Lines note* The issues with the water supply in the cabin were unfortunately caused by the unprecedented amount of rain in the spring. It is the first time the facilities have had this issue in many years of operating. Thankfully everything is now back to normal but we do apologise unreservedly for the inconvenience.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
If he like catfishing

Yes

General comments:
Having fished this lake three times before and found it to be a good venue for carp,on this trip I noticed that the catfish have obviously got a lot larger and they seem to overrule the lake and push the carp out,as much as they are fun to catch some of them need removing as in my opinion it's going to ruin this water as a carp lake.

*Angling Lines note* Bernard has upped the catfish removal operation. Over the course of the next few weeks many will be removed. This should bring the balance of species in the lake back to usual.

Name of customer:
Neil Martin
Number of anglers:
6
Details of your catches:
40+ fish caught during the week (discounting a handful of 6-8lb bream) which was not bad as some of the party are novices in this game!

4 x 40lb+ mirror carp largest being 46lb and 47lb (2 others of 41lb)
10 other mirror carp of 30lb+
11 mirror carp 20lb+
1 x common 17lb 1 x grass carp 27lb, 1 x golden common 18lb
13 catfish (3 of which took our 70lb scales beyond their limit! The lake record would have certainly been threatened we felt with two of them - Bernard treated us to a bottle in 'unofficial' celebration). Others of 65lb, 51lb.

As a group we lost around 10 fish also.

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Fish were caught on single boilie with scattered boilie to feed whilst one person fished maize to good effect.

Were the facilities what you expected?
There were problems with the faciltiies but as ever Bernard did his best to accommodate us. The shower facilities were a problem due to the water quality, but we were encouraged to pop to the nearby village and use his recently acquired property to shower when required. When the water supply completely put paid to the loo, Bernard was out with a workman to discover that the pump was no longer working - it was replaced that afternoon. The motor and battery to the boat also did not work but were replaced the very next day - he did his best to resolve and the issues!
Were you happy with them?
Not really but given the problems Bernard was having, we were happy with the resolutions. We have fished this water three times now and he and his daughter Sophie always do what they can to make the stay a welcome one.
Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Yes
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
Yes

General comments:
Water level was higher this year which made the fishing better we felt. Once the catfish moved into our swim, the carp appeared to move out and the catch rate was falling as the week progressed (the weather was cooler towards the end of the week too).

I enjoyed the opportunity to practise my somewhat rusty schoolboy French (from 35 years ago) with Bernard - he's a top chap and even invited us round to watch the Euro football finals at his home, which sadly France lost!
Big Cat!

Holiday date:
Sat 25th Jun to Sat 2nd Jul 2016
Name of customer:
Claire Devere Whiteway-wilkinson
Number of anglers:
4
Details of your catches:
Roughly caught around 50 fish between 4 anglers. There was a range including catfish, mirror carp, grass carp, bream and Common.

Bream ranged 7 - 10lb
Common - 40lb
Grass - up to 44lb
Mirror - up to 48lb
Catfish - up to 69lb


Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Cc Moore boiles various range
Hemp ground bait
Fished around the island

Were the facilities what you expected?
It was unfortunate that due to the amount of rain over June that the lake was extremely high, this lead to limited places for our group. The water in the cabin for using in food prep/washing was contaminated and had the most awful smell, this was quite bad, therefore Mr Bernard had to get us some fresh water which he provided in large bottles, he also allowed us to shower at his home without any hesitation. Mrs Bernard also washed some clothing for us too. I have to say although the lake and facilities were unusually not at there best (we have been before and never any problems). Mr & Mrs Bernard were simply fantastic and couldn't have done much more for us. He seemed to find the problem Friday and was trying to get it sorted.

**We're really sorry to hear you had issues with the facilities at Beaurepaire, we are assured that Bernard is working to fix them asap.
Were you happy with them?
Unfortunate circumstances this year
