Etang Cheminel Carp Lake in France


This is a beautiful 20 acre Carp Fishing Lake in the Champagne Ardenne Region of France and is one of the Cassini lakes created by nuns in the 1700’s to supply Carp for the table 

Etang Cheminel is located deep in the Beval oak forest.

About 230 miles from Calais which is about three and half hours drive, near a town called Givry. It is a very peaceful place and the wildlife is abundant with Deer, Wild Boar, Red Squirrels, Kingfishers, Egrets and Owls are often spotted and at certain times of the years is visited by Ospreys. This lake was previously only used for duck shooting up to 2007 before Steve Wells purchased the lake and turned it into a Carp Fishing Lake.


There is a large head of Carp that are growing at a very fast rate. The lake record is now a Common Carp weighing in at 52lbs. 4ozs and the Mirror Carp record is 55lbs 12ozs The average weight is now around 32lbs. There are English toilets and shower facilities with a fridge available and freezer space. Unhooking mats and weigh slings are provided and carp pellets and boilies can be purchased on site. There is a maximum of eight anglers allowed on the lake at any one time with fishing only allowed from one bank so you will have nobody opposite when you are fishing. The lake is spring-fed with depths ranging from three to seven feet with a small island, reed beds and lily pads.

Your fishing tackle is taken to your swim for you so there is no need to carry your carry all your tackle.
