Wild Lake (France)

Carp Crossing Holidays

Wild Lake (France)


2.5 hour drive from Calais

At 2.5 hour drive from Calais you will find this 4 ha. carp lake called Wild Lake in the L'oise region. This region is well known for it's many lakes with beautiful carp. Abbey lakes and Etang 5 are this very same region and are not far from Wild Lake. Our lake is very calm and isn't situated near any public road. The lake has never been used as a pay lake until recently. Most of the carp in this lake haven't been caught before.


This lake has 3 swims and there is a maximum of 5 anglers allowed. There are 2 double swims and 1 single.

The water is very clear and you can see the bottom until 2-3 meters easily. This lake has weed beds like many other lakes in this very same region. The open spots and small canals in the weed where the carp pass through are easy to find on sight or with a sonar. A real challenge for anglers who like to search for carp. The depths are between 1.00m and 6.00m with a good diversity. Taluds and plateaus.

Swims can be reach by car and your car can be parked at your swim behind your bivvy.



Dogs are allowed. Use of boat and bait boat are allowed. Fish can be sacked but must be released as soon as possible. Particles are allowed. Fishing with barbed hooks is also allowed.


The stock on this lake consists of around 150 carp with an average weight of 17kg. As far as we know for now the lake has a 50/50 balance on common and mirror carp. The top fish out so far is 26kg, but it may very well be we have to adjust these numbers when more fish have seen the net.



Toilet and electricity available for charging batteries. Shower possibilities are near by at the local camping side but not at the lake.

Pontpoint village near by has all you need. For your daily groceries or pickup dinners you are at the right place. There also is a tackle shop in the same village when needed.
