Located in the Sarthe, not far from Le Mans, the Loch'ness carp pond of about 15 hectares (37 acres) is a beautiful gravel pit for carp fishing from 15 March to 1 November. You will be quiet and in the middle of nature.
The lake is composed of 6 swims which gives each swim a large fishing area. The gravel pit is difficult to fish, the carps are not easy to catch but some real beauties swim in this pond: big common, big mirrors and many fish with wonderful scales (Fully etc.). The known record is a carp of 28 kilos (62lbs) and the average weight is around 12 kg (26lbs). Very large grass carp and catfish are also present in Loch'ness.
The natural food source is substantial, which does not make it easy for anglers. Any catch in Loch'ness is a great reward.
In the summer months, the gravel pit is very weedy. Anglers have to look around to find the fish properly. Using a boat can be a good way to explore the water and avoid losing fish in the weeds during the fight.
The Loch'ness gravel pit is known for its wild and preserved environment, its difficult to capture carps and the quality of its services: sanitary blocks and lodges.
In terms of facilities, Loch'ness' lake is well equipped : a shared area with toilets, shower and washbasin.
Swims 1 and 2 have a Lodge that can accommodate 2 anglers and 2 companions (2 double beds). The Lodges are high quality accommodation, built in stretched canvas, with gas hotplates, fridge, microwave and dishes, as well as water and electricity.
Swims 3, 4, 5 and 6 are standard swims for biwy fishing.
Each swim has a pontoon to position the rods. A rod-pod is welcome!
It is possible to rent a boat on site, to be seen directly at Fred's loan after your online reservation. The boats are equipped with an electric motor and two batteries for the motor.
