There are approximately three acres of water for you to explore at Echo pool, the main lake is around two and a half acres, it has an average depth of about eight feet with the deepest parts reaching over twelve, the vast majority of the shallow end is around five foot deep.
The stalking pool is about half an acre with an average depth of about 4 foot with the deepest part being around eight.
Both lakes are stream and spring fed meaning we have a very good turnover of water, keeping the water quality very high and buffering any temperature change.
We also have two other growing on basins.
The lakebed on the main lake is clay with large areas of gravel, silt, mud, sand and rocks. There are deep margins on the far bank with overhanging trees. Dotted around the lake are plenty of gullies, channels, plateaus and bars the stream bed also cuts right through the middle of the lake. There are lilies, reeds and other water plants around the lake but no weed.
The stalking pool is basically a small version of the main lake.
Fishing on the main lake is only allowed in the designated swim which is situated on the far side of the lake. Our cabin is on the opposite side of the lake so we are always on hand should you get into any difficulties, but far enough away that you won't feel like we're breathing down your necks.
Don't forget that during your stay your group will be the only anglers fishing the lakes
Lovely secluded location
Plenty of underwater features Tree lined margins
We have done our best to remove all dangers from the lake which included removing an island which has opened up the shallow end of the lake and also left a nice big plateau underwater.
We decided to get rid of our 4 swims and build one
massive swim capable of accommodating at least 6 anglers with all their gear. It
should be noted that we only allow a maximum of 4 anglers at our venue though.
The idea behind this was to make your carp fishing holiday a much more social
break as you can all bivvy up together but still have plenty of room, all areas
of our lake can easily be fished from the swim.
The swim is completely surrounded by logs and covered in
granite chip making it much cleaner than bark.
We feel this is a big improvement to our carp fishing
venue and are sure it will improve your fishing holiday in France.
The swim also has a double 240 volt English socket it should however be noted that the power to this socket comes from our generator so is only on for a few hours in the morning and evening. It’s ideal for charging bait boats, lap tops and phones but is not capable of running anything of a higher wattage.
The stalking pool is included in the price when you book Echo Pool.
It has been very popular with some anglers who want to rest their swim on the main lake for a few hours or even a day.
We use this lake as a stock pond for fish between 10 and 30lbs or anything small caught throughout the season in the main lake.
Because of the size of fish in this lake we are not so strict on the rules…. There are no swims so you can please yourself where you fish. You must always have your landing net and mat with you but other than that you can fish as you like as long as it is safely and the fish are still treated with the up most respect.
Before fishing this lake have a chat with us first.
Most of the fish you catch in here will be really pretty.
Important note regarding stalking pool.
Because we use this lake as a stock pond we cannot make any guarantees as to what stock it contains. We drain and net every year sometime between February and June. We always leave fish behind and some always miss the net but we must ensure there is enough space in this lake to move babies etc from the main lake throughout the season.
