Video: Cailleaux, A True Runs Water in France

For those of you looking for a runs water in France, look no further. We welcomed Cailleaux to the Angling Lines group early in 2020, having worked with owner Sebastien Vasseur for many years now on the very successful Blue Lake and more recently Lepinet too.

Cailleaux can best be described as a runs water carp lake, somewhere you can expect plenty of runs for all and plenty of fish on the bank.

Jamie Bellhouse visited the lake for a few days in October and filmed this video for us which should give you a good insight into the venue and what you can expect.

Cailleaux lake, at 5 acres, is smaller than the Vasseur’s other lakes (Blue Lake and Lepinet) and the fishing is action-packed with plenty of carp, catfish and sturgeon. This is a place where you can relax for a week in the knowledge that the fishing should produce well.

The five acre lake is booked for a maximum of five anglers on non-exclusive weeks but can be booked for groups of up to 7 anglers exclusively. The five double swims, all on one open bank, provide plenty of options and a very sociable layout to enjoy a holiday with friends.

Because of the lake’s good stocking, it is well suited to groups of mixed ability or indeed an angler’s first time carp fishing in France. The fishing is fairly straight forward and the lake does not present too many challenges in terms of snags etc.

The lake is a short 2hr 30 drive from the port of Caen and 4hr from the port of Calais.

Here is some of the feedback we have received from our anglers so far:

Absolutely fab, needed a holiday after as was non-stop catching. Over a hundred fish throughout the week – biggest carp 54lb, biggest cat 93lb & biggest sturgeon 43lb. Can’t thank Sebastian enough, nothing was too much trouble.”

John White

“Definitely recommend, at times the action was non-stop. this is a runs water with a good chance of catching predominantly carp, with a mix of cats and sturgeon. The team are all very friendly and helpful. A unique and fantastic feature of this lake are the fire pits in all the swims!”

Nigel Potter

“Around 100 fish landed, including 6 x 40lb+ carp, 2 x 35lb sturgeon, 94lb, 75lb, 55lb catfish. Plenty of smaller carp and cats. Really nice kept lake and friendly owners. Very good runs water in France.”
