Lake Juvanzé is a picturesque, mature willow-lined gravel pit covering around 5 acres, set in woodland away from the noise of traffic. The banks are grassy and lined with overhanging trees. The lake bed is an exciting and challenging combination of gravel bars, plateaus, clay and silt patches.
The water is rich with natural food and holds a large head of pretty carp, weighing 20 to 66lbs. There are currently three 60lb+ carp, at least 5 others over 50lbs, many over 40lbs and lots of upper 30s. The average weight is 34lbs and the fish are still growing fast! The fishing at Lake Juvanzé can be outstanding, the record week was set in 2010 when 5 anglers landed 122 carp!
The number of pegs has been kept to a minimum with five comfortable swims including two large doubles. Each swim has plenty of space for any bivvy.
The lodge area serves as a meeting point where meals are served. There are UK plug sockets for charging batteries and spotless shower and toilet facilities. Lake Juvanzé provides each angler with a high quality landing net, unhooking mat and weigh sling so no need to bring your own.
Lake Juvanzé comes highly recommended by anglers of all levels. Feedback continues to be superb, no disappointed customers here!
