Etang du Furet provides quality French Carp Fishing in central France, a 4hr 20 drive from the nearest port of Caen. The lake has been around since the 15th century and has a very mature, authentic feel. At 19 acres it provides ample room for up to 10 anglers.


The lake boasts many carp between forty pounds to high sixties and definitely has the potential to send you home with aching arms and a very large smile on your face.
 

All 9 swims (one being a double) are set along two opposite sides of the lake. All are spacious and offer good features. Several of the swims are set amongst the reeds with wooden pontoons reaching out into the lake. The owner of Etang du Furet, Guillaume Rousselet, is a well-known and respected French big fish angler with an impressive capture record.

"17 fish for me and my son. Overall great trip, well informed and great venue owner. Brilliant, thank you."

Nigel Cyster, April '19

Carp Fishing in France at Etang du Furet

All 9 swims are surfaced and there is good vehicular access to all swims around the lake to unload your gear (in dry weather). There are reed lined margins all around the narrower end of the lake and closest to swims 1 and 11 is the roadside dam wall where you will find the deepest water.

 

Swim 1 is a double swim situated close to the dam wall.

Swims 2 and 3 are single swims but only 20-30 metres away from each other, making it a good option if you're looking to stay close together.

Swims 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11 are all singles.

 

Swims are booked in advance at Etang du Furet so you'll need to decide which swim you'd like when you book. You can see all the swims marked on the lake map here.  

We do ask that if you are two anglers booking together then you choose either swim 1 (a double) or  swims 2/3 or 4/5 or 8/9 or 10/11 together. This way it does not isolate single swims and groups can fish next to each other.  


Around the lake for the first 30 to 40 meters the bottom is sand and gravel and after that it becomes softer and silty in places.


The lake is relatively shallow with depths on average around 1.3m and range to 2m. However, during hot and dry summer months the lake becomes shallower, ranging from 80cm-1.5m in the middle. We strongly recommend taking waders with you, to allow easier and safer landing of the fish as the water is initially very shallow in places. 


Bait boats are allowed. There are crayfish present and these can become apparent in the hot weather when they become more active. It is always best to go prepared - you can find lots of information here for combatting crayfish in France. Shrink wrapping your bait is a tried and tested method to use.

A 0lb Carp from Etang du Furet

The lake holds an original stocking of carp, largely unknown, and owner Guillaume introduced a further 40 carp between 44 and 66lb and another 40 carp between 33 and 44lb in early 2016.


One mirror was stocked at 61lb in late 2015 and caught for the first time 3 months later at 66lb, measuring approx 1.15m in length, and most recently at 68lb which indicates great growth rates. The lake also holds 3 known commons over 60lb. 

Guillaume continued to add to the carp stock throughout the winter of 2016/17 and there are now approximately 180-200 carp in the lake.

These carp have been hand-picked for shape and look, as you can see from the photo gallery.
