Lake Description

La Loubière: Untouched for years, now available for Carp Fishing

La Loubière is located in the Cher region, only 40 minutes south of Bourges (Central France). Surrounded by large expanses of forests, fields and spectacular landscapes, this 37 acre carp fishing lake has only 7 double swims. Managed by Guillaume, a professional fish farmer, La Loubière has a spectacular carp stock that has been completed with the carp from his former venue Etang Rys at the St. Augustin property. The lake record currently is a 74.3 lb (33,7 kg) mirror.

The Lake

In the late 90's, La Loubière was a public lake where people from the area used to for swimming and camping during summer time. Around 2005, Mr. de la Rochefoucault, owner of the 15th century Chateau de Lalande, bought the La Loubière property as hunting land. The lake and the fish haven't been of any interest more than 15 years.

Along with his other lakes Camalo and Etang Furet, since November 2020 Guillaume now also manages La Loubière. He has created a great carp fishing venue with good facilities and of course: big carp.

Fed by the river La Loubière, this lake receives plenty of fresh natural water to keep the oxygen and the water temperature in perfect conditions. The silty lake bottom is fairly flat with gentle slopes to the middle. The deepest area is at the far end.

The Swims

La Loubière is a 37 acre long stretched lake with 2 swims on the northwest bank and 5 double swims on the southeast bank. Swims 6 and 7 lie relatively close to each other, good for 3 anglers who wish to have their own swims but want to have a social from time to time.

Swims 1, 2 and 3 are grassy swims. Swims 4 and 5 are wooden pontoons. Swims 6 and 7 are grassy swims and there is a wooden pontoon for the rodpod.

Swims 1, 2 and 3 have car access. Swims 4, 5, 6 and 7 can only be reached on foot or by boat. Own boats aren't allowed, but you can rent one on site.

The Fish

The original stock has been completed with fish from Guillaume's former venue Etang Rys at the St. Augustin property. La Loubière has an estimate of 600 carp. There's a good head of 30's, 40's and 50's. Because it's a very rich lake with lots of natural food (bloodworms, small freshwater mussels, etc), the carp with gain weight quickly. The lake record currently is a 74.3 lb (33,7 kg) mirror.

There is grasscarp to keep the weed formation under control. There's no poisson chat, but there is crayfish.

Swim map and swim description needs to change as it is not an accurate reflection of what is on site. Water level was low ( possibly by as much as 60cm) this also needs to be advised.
Good venue with potential in the future.
Wij hadden heel matig gevangen, kleine vis en ook zitten er teveel graskarpers op. De vissen zaten allemaal rond stek 4-5 daar werd wel goed gevangen. Wij vingen 5 vissen van za-wo.Wij kregen de kans om halverwege de week te verkassen naar etang Furet dat was een goede zet want daar vingen we nog 17 vissen tot 25 kg. Maar ook op Furet veel kleine vissen van tussen de 5-8 kg het is wel noodzakelijk om die ervan af te halen. En de ratten en bever ratten is daar echt een plaag je kon echt niks buiten laten liggen of het werd wel aangevreten.Gr Erwin Harders
Ik wist niet dat de beheerder moest gebeld worden 2 uur voor aankomst.
Ik had 28 karpers tot 19kg600. Veel kleinere vissen (20 tussen 3 kg en 15kg).
Heb een geweldige week gehad zaten met 2 mensen te vissen op het meer en dat bracht een hoop rust. Heb meer dan 40 karpers gevangen en 6 20+ karpers met als zwaarste 23.5 en 24 top gewoon
