Fishing at the Castle for Rent in France
Our Private Carp Lake
In the grounds of the castle Lagorce is our very own lake. Measuring roughly 200 metres by 60 metres with a small island in the middle. The lake holds excitable Grass Carp and Mirror Carp sizing up to the mid 45lbs. These fish are by no means the biggest of fish in France. But you will feel that you are fishing a truly idyllic carp lake untouched by the peg builders and working party sessions. The lake holds secrets that you alone must discover. Backing onto the end wall of the castle you can fish whilst eating your Sunday dinner.
Then retire for a pleasurable game of Snooker and a few glasses of the local Vino.
At the back of the castle grounds runs a fresh water stream. The stream holds Trout and Sea Trout and is a great place to get back to nature with your fishing.
Shown here is a guest in his final moments of landing a lovely conditioned 20lb Mirror.
Aloses Fishing on the RIvers Garonne and Dordogne
