Etangs du Nenuphar is a complex of lakes set in over 50 acres of secure grounds in the Picardie region of northern France. Easy to find, and only 2.5hours drive from Calais the complex is situated near to Laon, and is only 20-30 minutes from junction 13 of the A26, between the small towns of Pinon and Anizy Le Chateau.
The lakes were dug and stocked around 70 years ago, but never fished until we arrived as the property was only used for hunting prior to this. The 9 acre “Estate Lake” took 2 years of careful reshaping and landscaping to produce the ideal environment for carp and carp anglers alike.
Though it already held around 100 original carp The Estate Lake has also been carefully re-stocked and now holds around 250 carp to over 50lbs, the odd one or two over 60lb, as well as a few catfish to 90lbs+. The new lake “Etang Sociale” will be around 6 acres and contain carp to 40lb+ and catfish to 70lb+.
This lake will offer the absolute best of both worlds, a great social with your friends or family and serious fishing, as 4 or 5 anglers will be able to fish all together from 2 central islands instead of being lined up along one bank.
It may not have escaped your notice that your options for a carping trip to France are almost limitless, with new venues opening on an almost daily basis. So why should you spend your hard earned with us ??.We believe a week at Nenuphar is very good value for money. We also offer bait and food at reasonable prices, and at Waterlily Lakes the emphasis is on providing the highest quality fishing holiday we can at a realistic price, for more information see our booking pages.
