Exactly as Yellowman recommends.

Walk the lake on arrival to see where the fish are holding up at that point in time. Prepare to fish near to snags and take the gear to combat this type of fishing.

Might still be a few rogue catfish which can give you a good fight.

There's good facilities around the lake. If you do a private hire it can almost be too much room and quite isolating if the next person is 500 yards up the bank. However one bonus on a private hire is that you have plenty of options to move if you're not on the fish.

I've been twice now, enjoyed both trips and wouldn't hesitate in going back. I caught on both trips, the last trip I used the biggest pva bag I could find, putting just boilies and chops in with my rig and was putting it out with a baitboat once I'd found my spots in the rowing boat.

Drop me a pm if you want anymore info

Can get weedy.
All swims can be good, fish do show themselves.
Prep for crayfish.
Simple rigs and strong ones ! Can be snaggy - use braid and a good lead drop system such as MCF Dumper
Use a boat and echo

John and Ross give great advice.

One of the best lakes and well run I have fished in France, good facilities and secure.
Also some stunning fish too.

Provided all is well by the time my trip is due to take place I am heading here later in the year, for my first ever trip to France!

What are peoples experiences with the place in general?

I've seen a few of the Blakes videos on YouTube, but wouldn't mind hearing from a more varied group of anglers as well.

Any swim preferences? Or tactics?

I'm happy with my own bait choice, so do not require info regarding preferred baits

Any other information would be greatly appreciated though.

Interesting lake with bays and channels. Pay for a boat and use an echo sounder to find spots. I just used boilies and caught well both times. 5 fish a week is probably average but if you're on them you could easily double that. Its not an easy lake but I've had some stunning fish from there.
A2 baits did really well for me...
Just seen this is 2 years old 🤣

Been there a few times and enjoyed each visit. The lake is clean and tidy with good access to all swims. Each swim has plenty of space and thereís lots of different options, open water, snags, margins. Iíve only used boilies on thereís and done ok, shoreline baits GLM sausage is a popular choice.
