Private Carp Fishing Secluded Waters Cuckoo Lake Dordogne
The lake is at the heart of the property , extending to three and a half acres and surrounded on all sides by mature woodland. Like most lakes in the area it is artificial and stream fed, with a barrage or dam at either end.
In the past it was a specialist carp water with fish up to 50lbs. However it is not known if those fish still exist. Since acquiring the water in 2014 it has been rarely fished and we are unsure of the range and maximum size and type of fish to be found.
We have had caught numerous carp in the mid to late twenties, a quantity of smaller carp; large rudd; some roach and black bass. The fish are of excellent appearance, well muscled due to being wild fed, and are not hook or bait shy.
This is an ideal water for mixed family fishing with fish large enough to keep a more experienced angler busy while containing a sufficient variety of smaller fish with which to introduce a youngster to wild fishing.

Alan Atkins - '' a new lake is the unknown and at this lake that is what you get for example How big do the Carp go [ we don't know] what we do know is that we have caught Carp to 21 lbs,but Carp grow very large in this area of France and if some biggies get caught I would not be surprised one little bit. We have also caught some very nice Rudd [ who have a taste for sweetcorn ] Add to this the serenity of the Lake and the Foret da Double and the lovely cabin set close to the lake time spent here with your feet up and with chance of catching an unknown large Carp sounds grand to me''
Neal Jones - ''Fished here for the day with a friend in August 2015 and caught 13 mirror and common carp between 10 lb and 18lb . Excellent fishing in beautiful peaceful surroundings , plenty of swims around the lake
For longer stays there is a newly refurbished cabin with kitchen and toilet facilities. Ideal for family holidays
Kids and dogs will love the acres of forest that surround the lake''
Paul Davies - ''We spent 2 afternoons here, what a beautiful spot. I haven't fished for years, couldn't believe it when I pulled out a couple of 20lb carp. My wife got one too - she's never fished before!
Take some wine, have a bbq. I could happily spend the rest of my life there''
