Les Croix is one of the few venues in France where everything has been done legally from day one. The fishery is registered in France, and all our carp have been purchased from bonafide sources. - we strongly disagree with the theft and illegal movement of carp which is still a problem in France, and now that the French authorities are clamping down on illegal lakes, imposing huge fines, we hope that these places will soon be a thing of the past.

 

 

We are proud to say that all the carp at Les Croix are in pristine condition - this is due

to the fishery rules and fish care procedures, all carp are weighed and photographed

in the lake. Having invested heavily in the fish stock, it's obvious that we would

want to protect the fish and preserve their condition so as to make it possible for

our clients to enjoy catching pristine condition carp - we believe that the condition of the fish is more

important than their weight, and that all carp regardless of their size deserve the same respect and treatment.

 

 

The lake contains around 100 mirrors and 25 commons. The average weight is

well into the 40 pounds bracket, and around half of the fish are in excess of 40lbs*. There are

15 different fish in excess of 50lbs, three of which are 60lbs+ - going up to nearly 70lbs.

 

Although the number of big fish here is exceptional, there are carp of all sizes in the lake,

with a few smaller fish coming through that have been stocked for the future of the fishery, and one or two

that have bred in the lake, these fish are managed and are rarely caught, so they are never a nuisance,

in fact it is an event when one of them is actually caught !

 

 

The fish stock is closely monitored and managed and this will continue as we strive to maintain the population of carp at the correct level, in order to produce good sport and continued growth.

 

 

You can find more info about the stock, and weekly catch reports on our Facebook page. (Click on the News Tab).

 

 

* Weights of the fish vary and are lower in the post-spawning period June - August.
