Livardiere Carp Fishing Lake in France 

Livardiere is a 42 acre carp fishing lake in France, close to the famous city of Le Mans. It is about a 4 hour drive from Calais and only 1 and a half hour drive from the port of Caen and is located on the Domaine de Saint Fraimbault Estate.

There is fantastic accommodation very close to the lake for those who want a little bit of luxury. 

The Carp Fishing Apprentice Surpasses The Master

A fantastic catch on Carpfighters Livardiere Lake by father and son team Michael & Theo Kimber who had a trip at the end of May 2015. Although Michael did well we are much more impressed by Theo who beat his personal best twice. Carp Fishing Trips think he has just sent out a firm warning to his dad!!

The weeks catch for the duo was 11x20s, 10x30s, 5x40s & 1x50lb Carp.

Carp Stock

The original carp stock has some very nice scale patterns and some are now weighing up in the 60lbs and the lake record is a massive 71lbs. In 2008 a stock of 150 French royal carp were stocked ranging between 26lb & 46lbs. More than 100 of these carp weighed over 33lbs when introduced. During the 2013/2014 winter another 50 fish were introduced weighing between 11lbs and 22lbs, and during the winter of 2014/2015 another 12 fish were stocked in the 35+lb bracket. This stocking campaign ensures that young healthy Carp are coming through to enhance your Carp Fishing Holiday at Livardiere Lake.
