Lake Description

Lac Baleine is an astonishingly beautiful 23 acre (9 hectare) lake set on 40 acres of land in the idyllic Champagne region, near Vitry-le-François, just over 3 hours from Calais. Spectacular views and a tranquil atmosphere make this a very special lake indeed. With its stunning fish stock of over 350 carp and record fish up to 34kg, Lac Baleine can have a maximum of 12 anglers fishing.

The Lake

A mature tree-lined lake, excavated over 25 years ago, Lac Baleine consists of gravel and clay. The lake offers a multitude of interesting features: from two islands with overhanging trees and deep margins to depths ranging between 8 to 12 feet (2,5m to 3,5m) depending on the time of year.

The Swims

Spacious, well-maintained and perfectly positioned, Lac Baleine consists of 23 swims, a mixture of singles and doubles, with a maximum of 12 anglers. This ensures anglers have the freedom to move around while maintaining the secluded atmosphere that makes this such an impressive lake. All swims are accessible by vehicle. Lac Baleine can be weedy during the warmer months.

Important: swims can't be prebooked. On arrival there's a draw. If you're traveling with a group, you will be able to fish together (on adjacent swims). There are 23 swims for only 12 anglers, so everybody will get a nice swim with interesting features. The arrival day is on Sunday and the draw is at 1 PM.

The Fish Stock

Lac Baleine has a stunning fish stock of over 350 carp. The owners estimate that more than 25 carp are above 22kgs, 10 fish above 30kgs and a current lake record well over 34kgs!
