Stephen, Cathy and Dan Eastwood: Happy To Be Back

Happy To Be Back

By Stephen, Cathy and Dan Eastwood on 1 August 2020

So happy to have the chance to come back to Oakview, especially this year after we thought it wouldn't be possible. Always have a super time no matter what. Fishing started slow, but built up mid-week and Steve was happy with his 30/40 pounders. The weather went from cloudy to super hot (even too hot!!). Summer heat means lots of flies though, and the fly swat was in constant use! Best of luck for the roller-coaster of this year.

Excellent As Always

By Shane Richardson & Mandy Smith on 11 July 2020

5 Star as always. We have been coming to Oakview Lake on and off for 11 years now, we've always loved it here. We knew this year would be different, but Martin - you have done Shirley proud. It was perfect. Keep up the good work. We'll see you next year. And I've had my best week ever.

Russell Garner and Mick Taylor: Fantastic


By Russell Garner and Mick Taylor on 2 November 2019

Fantastic accommodation and fishing. First time at the venue and we've already booked for next year. Thank you Martin for the fishing tips and wishing Shirley all the best. We would highly recommend Oakview as an all round holiday venue.

Amanda and Nigel Newman + Mom: Brilliant


By Amanda and Nigel Newman + Mom on 26 October 2019

Facilities are brilliant, lake was beautiful; one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. Great hosts - very welcoming. Lovely rural location too. Nigel's first experience of fishing in France and he is smitten. Thank you so much Martin and Shirley and hope to see you again very soon! All the very best to you both - Amanda, Nigel and Sandra xxx

Coronavirus Travel Restrictions Ended For Carp Fishing Trips To France

The lifting of restrictions in France and the latest UK Government announcement officially opens the way for carp anglers to cross the channel and travel to French carp lakes. Some intrepid travellers have already made it across the channel and are fishing in France this week.

Oakview Lake Netting August 2018

Summer removal of small fish provides a rare opportunity to see lots of big carp in mid season. Not a full carp count this time, but interesting to compare the spawned out fish with the fat bellies we see at a winter netting.

51lb 10oz Carp Smashes Oakview Lake Record

Another record fishing session sees the first 50lb carp landed at Oakview Lake. It's a new lake record, a new PB for angler Pete Wright and the lake's first carp to top 50lb.

Oakview Lake Rated Amongst Top Carp Fishing Venues in France

You have to be very confident about your venue before you give an angler like Paul Cooper the chance to scrutinise it in every detail. Long time friend he may be, but that doesn't mean he'll tell you (and everyone else) what you want to hear. Paul gets to fish the lake and then see the lake netted. Here's what he had to say.

Big Fish Haul Smashes Record. Average Carp Size 38lb.

Philip Anderson took the lake apart in terms of big carp during his family fishing holiday. Philip and his son James landed 18 carp with a whopping average size of 38lb. Philip banked 6 forties, the most 40 pound carp caught by a single angler. That's great fishing even for France and on this occasion, Phil's wife Tracy was also there to see it.
