Etang Meunier Lake Guide


At around 6 acres in size you don't need over the top heavy duty carp gear to fish Meunier and most standard good quality gear is fine. We recommend lines around 15lb as your main line. The bottom of the lake is generally light silt, free of weed, and most standard rig systems work well. Generally speaking, other than the obvious ones, there are no major snags in the water, but like any lake, after winter gales, the odd small branch can fall in and get stuck in the bottom.

Over the years, the Meunier fish have been caught on most tactics from single hookbaits and PVA bags through to beds of bait. In general though they do like their food, and good quality boilies consistently applied often produces the best results. However don't be impatient, it can sometimes take a few days for the fish to get on your bait, and on a lot of holidays the better fishing is towards the end of the week. Obviously seasonal weather variations can affect fish activity, so we recommend you adjust quantities accordingly. There are no crayfish, but some years a few poisson chat have been present.

Our caretaker Brian will be on hand to advise and help you if required. There is a rowing boat available for your use but you will need to bring your own life jackets as they are not provided and bait boats are welcome although most areas can be baited from the banks. All landing nets, unhooking mats and weigh slings are provided and bags of pellet are available to pre-order if you wish.
