Carp Fishing In France

Cretelakes is a beautiful 5 lake venue set in 130 acres. The lakes are former gravel pits dug around the mid 1970s and around this time they were stocked with carp and other course fish.

The venue was left undisturbed to flourish and mature with its tree lined banks and stocks of fish for three decades. We acquired the lakes and set about creating a carp fishing holiday venue that would be second to none. After 6 months of removing trees and other obstacles swims for the anglers were created that were strategically placed to maximize everybody's chances. As the years passed we added a new stock of fast growing French carp including many 30lb+ fish and at present Cretelakes can boast some of the heaviest stocked lakes in France with several carp over 60lb that are still growing.

The onsite facilities at Cretelakes are excellent with a fully equipped kitchen, a large seating area with sky TV, a shop stocking those essential items including a large stock of bait, and a shower block housing 3 showers and 3 toilets. The showers are open 24 hours a day and can be used at your own convenience. We also have a toilet block located between lakes 3 and 4.

There are up to five bailiffs at Cretelakes and they will be on hand to cook the all important meals and look after your daily needs. They will help you find the best areas within your chosen pegs and be available to give advice on tactics and rigs etc.
