Poplars Lake is the first beautiful lake on the Etangs De Breton complex, which is situated just over an hour away from the busy
ferry port of St Malo..
The Redmire-sized lake is roughly rectangular in shape and is bordered all around its perimeter by mature trees and shrubs. Completely fenced and secure, Poplars Lake and Pond is a tranquil and very private rural retreat, with abundant wildlife, including ducks and red squirrels.
It is not overlooked by the nearby Birch Lake.
Only four large comfortable swims (capable of dealing with the biggest bivvy!) about forty yards apart exist on the heavily-wooded fishing bank, although there is also lots of scope for stalking.
Poplars Lake contains mainly mirror carp to a best so far of 46lb plus but there are also a few commons into the 30's. There are many 20lb and 30lb plus specimen carp.
The catfish run to 140lb, and strong tackle is needed to land them. Fifty-pound/sixty pound catfish are caught regularly.
Many personal best carp and catfish are caught by our clients every year and many return to fish Poplars year after year. A bait boat is recommended but we also supply a small one man boat for placing rigs and baits.
The coarse fishing is also excellent, with roach, eels, perch, American perch and gudgeon.
Poplars parties will also have exclusive access to Poplars stock pond just a few yards from the main lake, which contains many small cats and carp.
The mobile home on Poplars is just five yards from the water's edge. With mains electricity, it comprises two bedrooms one with a double bed and wardrobes and a small bedroom with twin bunk-type beds, (suitable for children), a separate bathroom with hot water shower, flush toilet and washbasin, it also features a kitchen area with cooker, dining area, and a lounge with English Freeview TV/DVD.
Just outside is a very sunny barbecue area overlooking the shallows and lily pads, with garden furniture and a barbecue. A bait/food freezer is provided and there is ample storage for tackle.
Parking is next to the mobile home.
