Kevin, Chris and Charlie returned for yet another tilt at Heron Lake with Chris R trying his luck on Kingfisher Lake this time round. Weather was pretty cold for the time of year with signs the fish were moving into deeper water. Fishing was reasonably tough, but effort was rewarded with some quality fish. Kevin caught our big common for the 5th time………….yes the 5th time. Weighing in at 65.10lbs, this represented a new PB and was soon followed up with a 64.4 mirror. Not to be out done Chris chimed in with his own PB – a 65.4 mirror making it three good 60’s in the week! 9 fish in total for an average weight of 51lbs+!

On Kingfisher, Chris R was also having a quality week with a 56.12 mirror to kick things off followed by three other 50’s, the largest of which tipped the scales at just over 59lbs. 8 fish in total with an average weight of over 47lbs. Really great to see this lake back to its best, getting fished regularly and producing some lovely results. All the hard work renovating this lake over 2 years has paid off and 2022 should be a great year on Kingfisher.

All in all, a very encouraging week with 17 fish caught and an average weight of 49lbs 15ozs. Have to be very pleased with that given the quality of the catches. All 4 anglers went away happy and will be back multiple times in 2022.

9 Fish, Total Weight – 471.12lbs, Average Weight – 52.35lbs

Great week for Chris, some lovely 50’s, Kingfisher is really back to its best now after some consistent catches over the last few months. Great to see it fished regularly again and producing regular high quality results.

Puyravaud delivered 17 fish this week – 3 x 60’s, 6 x 50’s and 4 x 40’s (13 fish over 40lbs) with an average weight of 49.15lbs……………!!!!!!!!!!! Our best ever result in terms of size of fish.

4 fish, Total Weight – 193.0lbs, Average Weight – 48.25lbs

The strangest week ever on Heron. Last week 40 fish, this week only 4. High pressure may have caused the change, but Heron is normally bomb proof and delivers double figures of fish.

Kingfisher Lake

Dan arrived for a very late booking for just 3 days of fishing – 55.5M, 45.2M, 40.2M, 58.9M

4 fish, Total Weight – 199.8lbs, Average Weight – 49.95lbs

Dan booked just three days before his arrival to try and beat his PB of 44lbs – a tall order with just 3 days of fishing, but had two special fish to beat his PB twice on the trip. Well done Dan!

Short second week for Kevin as he only fished 4 days and left early Friday – 53.8M, 47.7M, 36.14C, 55.8M, 38.8M, 54.11M, 44.6C, 58.11M, 53.10M, 35.10M, 28.2C

11 fish, Total Weight – 508.0lbs, Average Weight – 46.18lbs

Keith and Gary’s first visit to Puyravaud with Joan – 32.8M, 38.8C, 39.12M, 50.2M, 46.0M, 46.2C, 30.2M

7 fish, Total Weight – 284.1lbs, Average Weight – 40.58lbs

Slightly disappointing as some of the smaller fish in the lake made a showing, but still an average of over 40lbs. Shows Kingfisher is producing every week now which is just what we want.


Heron Lake

Kevin and Sue are back for yet another two week stay -week 1 catch report – 53.7M, 46.1M, 42.5M, 38.0C, 37.11C, 46.2M, 53.7C, 47.7M, 36.14C, 55.8M

Kingfisher Lake

Geoff, George and Richie visiting Puyravaud for the first time – 54.3M, 41.2M, 54.5M, 42.0M, 53.7M, 28.5M

6 fish, Total Weight – 274.2lbs, Average Weight – 45.62lbs

PB’s all round for these first timers, but could have been so much better had they landed the 4 other solid runs they had. That’s fishing, but look forward to seeing them back to try and improve their PB’s again! We had a run of 18 fish on the trot over 40lbs in two weeks fishing. Kingfisher is back!



James travelled to France for the first time to fish Puyravaud’s Heron Lake as part of the Plume group of 10. Fishing with his angling mate Rob, little did they know what a week was ahead.

Arriving with a mid 20’s PB, this 16 year old carp fishing nut started with a 36lb PB, Rob also breaking his previous best of 43lb with his first ever 50lb fish. James continued to catch and soon had his first 50, followed by a stunning final PB of 57.9lbs.

The duo managed 33 fish in total, over 1338lbs in weight and an average weight of 40.54lbs. Quite a first trip to France for James and one that might take a few trips to beat. Well done to Rob and James.

See you when you return in August 2023.
