Fishing France at Jonchery 7
If it's action and the chance of some real lumps you're after then this could be the lake for you. Affordable venues that can be booked for just 2 anglers are rare but at Jonchery 7 you have exactly that - a venue to book exclusively for just you and a mate. It's owned by the prominent fish farming Bachelier family and is set close to the dam wall of the Lac d'Orient. It's quiet and tranquil and has good vehicle access to your swim.
The lovely 5 acre lake sits on the same complex as its larger brother, the Jonchery main lake. It has just one large double swim which gives you access to all areas of the lake - it's perfect for 2, or at a push 3, friends to enjoy a week's fishing France on a prolific venue.
'Very very good holiday, beautiful fishery with fantastic fishing. Been coming away with Angling Lines for about 10 years this has got to be our best trip yet we will be back next year, very good bailiff Mark and family felt very welcome.'
Paul Coleman, Aug '15
This venue is one of five great lakes run by the Bachelier family and part of the Champagne Fishing group. You can find out more about the others here; Brocard Small, Brocard Large, Brie and Jonchery.
The lake forms part of a complex of lakes of which the Jonchery main lake is the largest. Jonchery 7 is separated from the larger lake by three stock ponds, ensuring your privacy. There are plenty of carpy margins and features to fish to. The depths range from 2-4ft at it's deepest point.
The track to this lake runs alongside Jonchery main lake and there's good vehicle access to the swims. It's a 15 minute walk to reach the shower & toilet which are clean and modern. We recommend taking a bike if you can fit one in!
Bait boats are allowed and can make the fishing even simpler. The lake responds to a wide variety of tactics, but boilies over light particle have produced some of the biggest catches.
On arrival you'll be asked to disinfect your unhooking mat, landing net and weigh sling to prevent the transmission of carp viruses.

This lake definitely isn't short of decent stock and the carping can be prolific - take a look at the venue video and you'll see what we mean.
For the record there's around 170 carp, at least 30 of which are between 33lb and 50lb.
What's more, because the owners are fish farmers, the carp have been hand-picked and some of the scale patterns on the mirrors, together with beautiful linears, will make for fantastic trophy pictures. Just take a look at some of the carp photos and see for yourself.
The facilities are sited at the entrance to the complex and are clean, well equipped and spacious. In addition to the shower and toilet there's a living area with a large table and benches and a kitchen with cooker, microwave and dishwasher. You can recharge batteries here too.
It's a great place to take cover if the weather turns for the worse or if you just want to eat a meal at a proper table. These large facilities are shared by the anglers on the Jonchery main lake, so you get a chance to see how they're doing if you want to socialise.
We stock terminal tackle from gardener and taska at the lake. There are also items available to hire, you can find details of these on under the 'Tackle Hire' tab above.
