Etang des Papillons, Bleu venue description
map load error

Bleu lake draws its name from the woodland backdrop that fills with wonderful bluebells in April! Fish stocks are superior to those you would normally find in the UK or France; the carp here average 22lbs, with plenty of larger specimens up to around 38lbs (including a number of beautiful 30lb+ common carp). Bleu also contains plenty of catfish, with the average weight (excluding offspring) being 54lbs and the largest just touching 95lbs. The good news is that these are banked nearly every week, and sometimes in massive numbers as there are virtually no snags to worry about anywhere in the lake.
