Lac Desire 1 & 2 brings you to the Marne department of the champagne region in France, only 240 miles from the ports of Calais ( 3.30 hours) and only 20 minutes from Lac Des Lesmont. Completely surrounded by woodlands, this beautiful 40 acre estate is completely secure and fenced in. The lakes are spring fed, very mature and was originally excavated for gravel in the seventies.
Desire 1, 14 acres in size with many features including gravel bars, plateaux’s and silt areas in depths ranging from 3 – 8 foot, eleven comfortable propose built swims positioned around the centre of the lake (in the shape of a horse shoe) including a shower block, meet and greet area, creating a perfect but at the same time private social holiday venue, with a max of ten anglers per week.
In 2012 we decided to make a few improvements to the lake that we felt would be rewarding to the angler by creating two lakes from the original lake Lac Desire, now known as Desire 1.
By building a dame wall we then created Desire 2. Approximately 2 acres in size with two small islands to fish to, we had lots of fun with Desire 2, we redesigned the whole lake bed giving anglers more features and more depth to fish to.
Lac Desire 2 comes with a lodge accommodation for up to two anglers and there non fishing guest or once again two purpose built swims are in place just outside the lodge covering the best parts of the water.
2014, the season has now ended and proven this year that Desire 1 & 2 are still going from strength to strength with a new lake record for Desire 1 at 63lb 4oz and 60 – 70 carp in the 40’s , handful of 50s, plus approximately 250 carp ranging from 20lbs to 40lbs.
Desire 2 also has a new lake record this year at 52lb 4oz, with over 45 carp ranging from 30lbs to 50+, With plenty of carpe to be caught why not pack your rods and become a carpe d’or carper.
