As from the 22nd March 2020, Puyravaud will remain closed due to the coronavirus and the approach taken by both the French and UK Governments. This has been forced on us by the cancelling of all flights and ferries from the UK in the short-term and the announcement of a lock down situation in the UK by Boris Johnson on March 23rd.

In the meantime, all customers will be offered alternative dates either in 2020 if possible, 2021 or 2022.  If customers wish to cancel they should claim on their travel insurance. We are doing everything we can to accommodate our customers and there is still much uncertainty. We ask that our customers understand that compromises will have to be made together to get through this unprecedented situation.

The most important thing right now is to STAY SAFE and we will see you all again at Puyravaud as soon as possible.

Thanks Marion and Peter

Our first catch report of the 2020 season! Regulars Kevin, Chris, Chris and Charlie kicked us off this time round.

Heron Lake

62.0M (Equals lake record), 32.5C, 50.0M, 31.0C, 42.0M, 28.0M, 42.0M, 26.0C, 31.0M, 43.0M, 35.0M, 43.0M.

Kingfisher Lake

37.5M, 46.0M

Bit slow on Kingfisher which will need time to settle down after the works and a year of grass. Great news for Kevin who had never had a 50 at Puyravaud despite a double figure number of trips. Now he jumps straight into the 60’s club and gets his first 50 as well. Well done that man!!!!!!!!

It seems like its been a very long time, but we have finally completed the refurbishment and stocking of Kingfisher Lake. Its been almost one year since we began the project to strengthen the dam wall and build a new monk.

A couple of weeks ago, we drained Heron Lake, sorted the fish and re-stocked some back into Kingfisher. Very pleased with the results of the netting – all fish in good health and weights were higher than expected. Biggest fish is 65lb, found some lovely high 50’s which should make 60 this year, but probably the best news is the stock of 40’s we have (39), many of which will soon add to the good number of 50’s we already

have in both lakes.

The day was long, but productive and I must thank Gary and Ian who flew out from the UK specially to run the nets as well as David and Claude – good friends who are always around when there is hard work to be done.

It finally feels like we are getting Puyravaud back to normal and ready for the 2020 season.

PS we do have one week in May and one in September free after a couple of date moves, so if anyone is interested its an unexpected opportunity to catch some Puyravaud carp in 2020. Get in touch.

Its seems like ages, but I am happy to say that work is now progressing well on Kingfisher Lake! We have a lot to do to strengthen the dam wall, build a new cold water monk and re-build the three swim fronts. We have made a lot of progress in the last couple of weeks and despite some setbacks with the base of the monk, we are hoping to finish by the 11th October.

We will then fill up the lake and stock sometime in December. We have ordered a number of new fish (20 – 26lbs) that will become the next generation of large Puyravaud carp and also ensure there is sufficient competition for food in both lakes from 2020 onwards.
