Following on from his success with the big fish venue Laroussi, Mehdi Daho opened a new lake just across the road in March 2006 – he called it Old Oaks. We’ve worked with Mehdi for well over 10 years now and he is without doubt one of the most dedicated owners we have ever met. His knowledge of carp fishing, his attention to detail in every aspect of customer care and his sheer love of what he does means that any fishery he's involved with has to be a success... and Old Oaks is definitely a carp France success.

 

Just watch the video to the right to get a taster of the fishing at this lake, filmed for FOX's 2015 'Edges' DVD, the team spent a week at Old Oaks with much success.

 

If you're finding it difficult to book the date you want at Old Oaks, it is well worth checking out the lake's famous big sister Laroussi.

 

"Old Oaks is the best venue we have fished by far, Mehdi was there if we needed anything but left you alone otherwise. Everyone broke their PB more than once, we will definitely be back." 

Simon Terrell, May '17

Carp France at Old Oaks

Old Oaks is a 34 year old virgin gravel pit of around 5 acres, situated just opposite Laroussi, around 3 hours from Caen. It had never been fished before 2006, being left wild and undisturbed since it was dug. A delightfully pretty little water it will comfortably accommodate 5 anglers and you book it exclusively just for your party.

Fishing is from one bank and is certainly exciting with a host of features including, plateaus, weed beds, gullies and overhanging vegetation that just scream ‘carp’.

Vehicle access is possible along all of the fishing bank.

In the past Poisson Chat have been a nuisance in the summer months (mainly June & July). We always recommend going prepared in case they do make an appearance. Meshing baits or using fake corn is often the best way to fish when they are active. If you’d like more tips on combating Poisson Chat there are several videos covering the subject here.

A 44lb Carp from Old Oaks

The lake does hold a significant number of original fish. These carp are mostly very dark mirrors and commons.

Additional fish were added in November 2005. This was followed by more stockings in early 2006. Each time only top quality fish were introduced - all handpicked by Mehdi. As the catch reports show the stock levels are very good - there's certainly no shortage of fish.

Take a look at the feedback and you’ll see that Old Oaks delivers loads of 30’s and 40's and almost every week sees a 50+ on the bank. For the record here’s the current stock situation; the vast majority of carp are 30lb+ with many different 40’s, and 50's including the magnificent long common which is the lake record. There are also 16 grass carp to 40lb+ and catfish to 70lb+.

Plastic corn above a bed of hemp and partiblend has proved to be a very effective method and a baitboat gives you a significant advantage.

Old Oaks has made a big impact already... and as the fish grow it can only get better and better. Looks like Mehdi has got another winner on his hands!
