Premier Carp Fishing in France

Roseau Carp Fishery lies in the small farming village of Boue, North Eastern France, a short 2 hours drive from the port of Calais.


The complex comprises of two lakes, the large lake is 10 acres in size with 10 swims with plenty of water per angler. The Large lake is a true runs water with a stock of 650 Carp to well over 40lb’s, the stock of 20lb and 30lb fish is impressive too with the average weight around the 28lb mark. An average week will produce 30+ fish per angler with the current record of fish to a single angler at 127 and this angler didn’t fish a single night throughout his stay! If runs is what you’re after then Roseau Large Lake is the lake for you…

Carp Fishing in France has never been this good

Roseau’s Small Lake is very much like a private estate lake back home, it truly is a little piece of paradise. The Small Lake is 2 acres in size with three swims along one bank, the swims have been created with platforms and decking which protrude out amongst the reed lined margins.”

“The stock is around 150 fish with the average weight around the 28lb mark, the lake record currently stands at 50lb 02oz. We have four 40lb+ present and a very high number of large thirties continuously pushing towards the magical number. The lake is best hired out exclusively to two or three anglers with plenty of water and features for everyone.”
The Small lake often produces around 65 fish per week with most of these thirties or very high 20’s, I wouldn’t describe it as a complete runs water like our large lake but 20 fish per angler per week is not uncommon.

I caught my first 40lb Mirror Carp from this carp lake in france

From Grant Matthews – Essex

Hi I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for the most amazing Carp Fishing trip  in France. I am based in Essex so since the age of ten years old I have been visiting all the lakes in the area, in hunt of the big carp. I am now 34 and I have not been able to break that 30lb PB for years, It has been a constant battle and one I have lost.

Lat year I decided that the UK did not hold the key for me to break this massive weight so I decided to have a look on the internet for Carp Fishing in France, and you popped up!  After I booked my tickets the excitement started to grow, me and my pals were so excited and when the day finally came, well we were like little kids! full of excitement and hope!

On arriving at the stunning Roseau carp fishery the first thing I noticed is how beautiful and quiet it was, first stop was the lodge for a well deserved beer. After getting settled we thought we would grab a  few hours before dark, there was no way we could not fish the lake, it looked… well, magical!

We decided to start on the big lake, I have heard that this lake was sometime compared to a runs water, to be honest I do not think there is such a thing, if carp are hungry they will eat, simple!

I cast out one of my rods into the middle of a gorgeous expanse of water, set the rod in the pod, fixed the bite indicator, and started messing about with the second rod… when all of a sudden my reel started to scream… I threw down my rod, and hit it… It was like hitting a BUS!. As soon as I struck into this fish it powered deeper into the lake, every time I thought I had the fight won, the carp decided to fight even harder! After a good 30 mins and my arm almost dropping off John managed to get the net under it. As we lifted it onto the unhooking mat I was delighted to see a stunning Mirror carp, I have to say it was the prettiest thing with scales I have ever seen. After carefully removing the barbless hook we weight it… and BANG, 36.5lb, within just 30 mins of having my rod in the water I had SMASHED my personal best!

The holiday carried on the same way as the first day, I had a total of 10 fish, the heaviest was 39.6lb and the rest of the guys had great catches too.

I have been fishing long enough to know that the chance of hooking into a french carp like that, so quickly is very rare, however I wanted to write to you to tell you how happy you have made me, I will 100% be returning to in my eyes the best Carp Fishing in France!

Thanks again…tight lines!
