Introduction to Lac Serreire

This beautiful and well stocked 20 acre lake holds an excellent stock of carp up to and over 60lb. 

The lake has everything that a carp lake should have.  There are areas of lilies, reeds, bays, overhanging trees, the dam and of course open water. The water is mainly quite shallow with depths from 2 feet to over 9 feet at the dam meaning it warms up quickly in the spring giving the carp a head start with their early year feeding.  The water quality is also very rich and these factors combined have provided the perfect environment for the carp.  Growth rates and the number of big carp that the lake can support have been phenomenal over recent years.

Lac Serreire is an interesting lake to fish as you can see the fish all the time. Because it is silty in nature and has a lot of natural food, you can find many areas where the carp dig holes and channels through the silt as they forage for blood worm.  It pays to spend time to find the right spots and the best presentation for fishing in silty conditions and this can lead to some big hits of fish.

This lake is available for up to a maximum of six anglers per week and can be booked individually or exclusively by a single group.  We limit things to six anglers to ensure that everyone has plenty of space.  We don’t like crowded lakes.

island-swim-june-2014Lac Serreire has the use of modern toilets, shower rooms, ladies only shower room and toilet, cooking facilities, freezers, etc in an old traditional style French barn that is equipped with all the necessities to make your stay comfortable and WiFi is even available in most of the swims.

 It is possible to have a lot of fish if you get things right and we are on hand to offer help and advice wherever people require it.  Already in 2023 50% of all carp caught have been over 40lb!!

Boats for anglers use are available on site and we provide high quality life jackets as well.  Please phone ahead for details.  We also allow the use of bait boats.

Due to the large stock of carp, Lac Serreire often responds well to heavy baiting.  The fish tend to be in large groups and it is possible to hold them in an area with the careful application of a good quality food bait throughout the week. Shelf-life baits with preservatives are not allowed on the fishery (all anglers bringing their own baits must bring fresh/frozen baits). Again, please phone ahead and we will be happy to advise you regarding bait choices and application.  Our house boilie/pellet and particle tend to out fish all commercially available bait and is a staple diet of the fish during the winter months.

During 2020 the lake was drained, all nuisance fish removed as well as all snags and tree debris.   We have also removed large quantities of silt and improved depths in several areas with the creation of some deeper holes and channels.  The lake has a stock of over 350 mirror, common, leather, ghost, linear and grass carp up to and over 60lb.  We also chalk the lake (using Siltex) every February to increase the natural process of silt break-down and further optimize the water chemistry. This in turn gives the natural food a boost during the year.
