Carp fishing near Saumur

My family and I (11 of us) are visiting Saumer for 2 weeks from 15 August. Me and the boys are looking to do a bit of fun fishing, i.e. plenty of fish (3 - 5Lb, the odd big one!!! Can anyone recommend any not too busy Carp lakes? Thanks.

Most villages around here have a 'plan d'eau', which can be fished by anyone. day tickets are usually available from the local tabac, or village store. If not, then the Mairie staff should be able to advise you. Ask for a 'Carnet de Peche pour le Plan d'Eau'. You can either fish by the day, or if you find one you really like, by the fortnight (or 15 days here).

There are a few commercial fisheries around and a few private ones too. A friend of mine lets me take people to his 2-acre lake close by if I ask nicely!

One place that comes highly recommended (though not for carp) but for trout is Moulin Hubeau, near Baugé, around 30kms north of Saumur. Have a look at http://moulinhubeau.free.fr/. a great day out, and you cab BBQ your catch by the lakeside!

We stayed at La Prairie near Saumur, they have their own small Carp lake, which has some very good size fish in it actually. (up to about 8lb we caught!)

They also sent us up to another lake nearby where we had to buy a permit for the day - which was excellent.

Their cottages are very spacious and really well planned with good quality furnishings and some lovely gardens.

Your sons will probably love their boat on the lake also - as well as a full size swimming pool!
