Het PlashuisNieuwkoop, Holland
Situated between Utrecht and Amsterdam, “Het Plashuis” borders the Green Hart of “Zuid-Holland”. This oasis for carp anglers features many islands, lilies, reed lined margins and of course lots of carp. The hospitality of the owners makes everybody feel at home…
Het Plashuis has a total surface of 28 hectares. The bottom consists of soft silt with hard pitches. The water has marvellous reed lined margins and lots of lilies. Maximum depth is about 2,5 meters. There’s a secure perimeter, which means that your car is safe on the car park.
The anglers can fish the lake from 9 swims. Each swim is strategically chosen and they all have unique features. All swims are made of wood, except swim 2 is a grassy swim. There’s enough space for 2 bivvies on the swims. Swims 1, 4, 5 and 7 are double swims; whereas 1 angler can book swims 2, 3, 6 or 8.
Swim 9, the so-called “Pontoon”, is a floating swim located near the peninsula in front of swim 1. From this swim you can fish 360°. Although too small for 2 bivvies, the swims can be booked for 1 or 2 anglers. The "Pontoon" is 4 meters by 6 meters. Swim 1 and 2 have free electricity.
Swims 1 and 2 are accessible by foot; the other swims only have access by boat.
All swims have a wooden boat that is included in the price, from which ground baiting and placing of hook links is allowed.
The carp at “Het Plashuis” have an average weight of 22 pounds. The heaviest carp was 45 pounds. You can also expect other species like bream, roach, tench, pike, etc.

Excellent venue set in a stunning location. Bailif Bart, his partner and child make you feel very welcome and help you as much as they can. The venue was undergoing construction work on this trip so facilities weren't as good as previous visits. Hopefully these will be brought back to standard with the construction work. Great fishing though!
