We have two 4 acre lakes here at Windmill offering “the best of both worlds”! A specimen Carp lake with a current lake record of 52lb 4oz and the Cat lake which has hundreds of Carp to 30lbs plus Cats to 94lbs making it a real runs water.
We are based deep in the heart of the Loire Valley between the historical cities of Laval and Le Mans, just 2½ to 4 ½ hours from the ports of Caen and Calais.
The lakes were dug approximately 25 years ago and are surrounded by a plantation of Poplar trees, completely secluded from outside distractions. We have no roads, trains or industrial units anywhere near the lakes, so apart from the occasional tractor there is total peace and tranquility.
Welcome to the new look Windmill Lakes, hope you all like the new layout of the website, any problems please let us know.
We have linked in the Facebook feed so you can see all the latest news and catches as they happen.
The new season is well under way now and the first spawning seems to have finished, fingers crossed!! The fifties have only been out twice so far as you can see in the 50’s gallary below, let’s hope that’s not it for this year.
