Destination L’étang de Vaise

L’étang deVaise can only be rented only in its entirety. With about 3.5 hectares, the majority of our guests will probably be 2 or 4 anglers but you accept up to 6. The choice is yours!

L’ étang des Vaise is equipped with an luxurious 4-birth lodge. The accommodation includes a first bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with two single beds. In addition, you will find a beautiful living room, a fully equipped kitchen and a separate bathroom toilet. The lodge also has electric heating, making it an excellent choice for the colder months of the year.

Two spacious pegs were built on the lake: a spot for the luxurious 4-birth lodge and another on the central part of the lake to accommodate biwys.

Each peg has a platform of about 20 m2 covered with gravel! It is advisable to use a rodpod and not rod rests. A boat is included in the price on both platforms. If you wish, you can install your own electric motor or rent it on site for € 50 per week (supplied with 2 batteries). Each spot is also equipped with a weigh bag, a landing mat and disinfectant.

At the dike, the water is up to 4.5 m deep. The lake bed consists of sand, gravel and mud. We advise you bring equipment to probe to inspect the most productive lakebed.

The fish stock of Létang de Vaise is unique. A total of 110 carp between 12 and 27.2 kg were introduced for an average weight of more than 15 kg. In addition, there are 10 grass carp weighing up to 29 kg, 10 koi carp, 2 silver carps of 26 and 29 kg and 2 mandarin catfish of 18 and 25 kg.

All fish are chipped to avoid theft and accurately track their growth. During the closing period, pellets are distributed several times a week in order to keep our fish healthy and to increase the average weight. In parallel, a bubbler system has been installed to maintain good water quality and sufficient levels of oxygen to stimulate fish to activley search for food.

With 110 carp over about 3.5 hectares, L’étang des Vaises is certainly not a carpodrome. Capturing specimens that inhabit the lakes will require precision and is aimed at experienced anglers. The lake is not intended to provide dozens of bites per day but rather to offer the opportunity to capture exceptional carp.
