Carp Quarry, Saint Servais, Callac, Dept 22

8 Nov

Carp Quarry is a very old deep granite quarry which closed in 1938 and now fills from underground springs. This 3 acre lake truly is one of the most unusual stunning fishing venues in France. To the far side of the lake rising from the water are 100 ft granite cliffs which are home to many birds of prey.

The swims are along one side of the lake which have been excavated to make large comfortable swims where it is possible to cast over to the overhanging trees on the cliff face opposite. The lake which is set in its own grounds has a large lockable gated entrance.

Carpquarry is situated about 2 miles from the market town of Callac in Dept 22 in Brittany in a small beautiful village of Saint Servais. The village of St Servais is very quiet and picturesque dominated by the church in the village square with a small river running through the village past a couple of small lakes where there are lovely walks. The village has a bar that sells a few groceries or is nice just to get a coffee in or a cold beer and it is only a few hundred yards walk from the lake.

You can park your car within the lake complex giving you total privacy. No permits are required and fishing is permitted day and night. We recommend up to 4 persons fishing. The lake is very deep with mainly a rock and gravel bottom with a few silty areas.

The average Carp are over 35lb upto about 60lb, the lake holds a huge head of 40s. There is a 3 bedroom house just up the road from the lake that makes fishing at Carpquarry very comfortable. Carpquarry is hired out on a exclusive weekly basis.
