Welcome to Lac Du Val:

The success of our fishery and the development of Carp to a very high quality is attributed to the quality of bait being used, which is changed every season in consort with Shaun Harrison and fed regularly when we are closed. For this reason it is a requirement that only Lac du Val Boilies are used.

With years of experience we promise a high quality value holiday tailored to suit your requirement.

About the water:

Our labour of love commenced in 1999 with the excavation of a 4.5 acre lake, fed by three streams and dammed at one end, which maintains water of the highest quality, all set in fully landscaped picturesque surroundings. The depth varies from 3m at the right hand end of the dam wall, averaging 1.5m in the centre, down to as little as 0.5m in the shallows by the islands at the top end.

About the fish:

The current stock is around 315 carp, loads of 30's, fish well into the 40's which are landed every week, along with 5 different Carp in excess of 50lb plus 3 different Carp up to 63lb.
