Carp Fishing in France

For the best carp fishing in France welcome to Etang de Cherpont, one of the friendliest carp fishing lakes in France . Cherpont is set in 65 acres in the rolling hills of the Limousin region in Central Massif France and was created in the early 19th century, giving it a cassini status. Cherpont is a 39-acre, river-fed, mature lake, in a peaceful, secluded setting with tree lined banks and beautiful views of the surrounding hills and country side.

The average weight is 34lbs and there are around 20 fish over 50lbs and there is a good chance of achieving a PB. A maximum of 15 anglers can fish at any one time and choose from 21 swims – so there is always somewhere to move if you fancy a change of scenery. All swims are easily accessible via a path, the furthest swims can be driven round to. Here at Cherpont we want you to enjoy your carp fishing in France. While you are here please ask us if there is anything we can do to make your stay even better. We have a choice of holiday packages to suit your needs and your budget.

Catching monster carp at Cherpont

So… Fishing in France… What can I tell you? Monsters! Absolute monsters!

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to fish at Cherpont Lake in France with Euro Carp Tours and what a trip it turned out to be 😉

A slow (but HUGE) start but the fishing really picked up as the week went on. I landed 12 monstrous carp in all, with the biggest being a 55lb PB doubling mirror that just blew me away!

A massive thank you to Terry and Steve Smith at Euro Carp tours who made this whole trip possible.

If you’re looking to do a trip to France carp fishing, get to Cherpont!
