Because we are different
Why are we different ?
This lake has been re-created specifically with the pleasure angler in mind. This means that you can visit us for a couple of hours or a couple of days with no need to upgrade your tackle (hire package available if you are holidaying in the area)
France has many huge carp lakes to suit every taste but our own angling was always about environment and not size or type of fish. We like to keep a maximum weight of 30lb in our lake, so if you are fishing for the many tench, bream, roach, rudd, sturgeon, chub etc you will at least have a chance of landing anything you hook into, but may have the fight of your life with some of our larger fish.
Most of the lake is easily accessible, your car can be parked right next to the swims to unload your equipment.
Starting in Spring and going through to Autumn we hold several matches of different genres, ranging from 6 hours to 48 hours where food is supplied if needed. Please see our Facebook page for details. This is a great opportunity to come along enjoy the day and meet like minded anglers.
NO LICENCE OR PERMITS REQUIRED 24/7
Lac des Trois Chenes (Three Oaks Lake) is set in the beautiful Perigord-Limousin Parc Natural where peace and tranquility is the order of the day, yet only 5 mins drive from the village of Bussiere Galant or the town of Chalus and 30 mins drive from the International Airport at Limoges.
Dating back to pre-Napoleonic times the lake is river and spring fed with depths from 0.5 metres up to 3.5 metres making the ideal natural environment for the fish to thrive and grow. There are various islands both above and under the surface and many channels and hollows created specifically for the fish to feed, making the ideal environment for fish and fishermen alike. Our aim is to stock the lake with as many native species as possible, it is presently stocked with over 15 species many already up to specimen size.
Sit back and relax around the 7 acre lake which is easily accessible with many different areas to fish, enjoy a half day or full day fishing experience and take in the sights and sounds of the forest around you.
The lake is ideal for the beginner and challenging for the experienced angler, also an ideal venue for clubs and associations (the lake can be pre-booked for matches).
