And... we already received some great pictures from the first big fish that came out this year. Find a selection of the greatest catches from March 2023 below.

First fish out at Lac Paul
The first fish came out at Lac Paul (Champagne Region) including these two nice commons. Also, the owner has made investments in the facilities: there's a brand new shower block and toilet.
Also, we wanted to share some very nice aerial footage with you from the lake. Check out the fish enjoying the sun at the surface. You also get a clear picture of the swim and some ideas of how the bottom looks like in different areas of the lake.
Major improvements at Grosley
Lac de Grosley started the season with brand new facilities, new chalet in swim 13 (people won't recognize the swim!), refurbished chalet in swim 10 and much more. Also, the water has been treated with a truckload of calcium carbonate to reduce acidity and to increase alkalinity of this naturally acid lake. This will keep the weed formation during summer under control.
No easy fishing these days at Grosley, but... the rewards are awesome. Check out the size of the fish caught these days in swim 19 (pics of the 3 mirrors below).
Etang Moulin: Big Common released last week
Constantin who fishing Etang du Moulin 3-4 times per year has caught his biggest fish at the lake. A fantastic common of 29,30kg // 64.6lb. Well done!
Lac de Villedon: Big!
"Here u have the Update from the last 8/9 days the beginning of the season with all the fish that came out, the fishing is going pretty good at the moment. The lake is not fully booked so sometimes the fish is on the safezones. But from tomorrow we almost fully booked.
But not alot of people have blanked last week , swim 15 had almost 40 fish with loads of 40/50/60 's. This week swim 19/17/15/3/4/5 are producing good size fish also. They are totally full after wintertime , hope u can make a nice update from the fish im sending to u in this mail.
Thanks alot and wish u all a very good year!" Stefan van de Berge, Lac de Villedon
