Maurepaire was a lake that often appeared in the UK carp magazines a few years ago. It was run by Dave Payne and many of the UK’s top carpers fished there and had stunning catches. After Dave left, the owner Patrick Bachelier, one of France’s most respected fish farmers, closed for a year before re-stocking. He re-opened it in 2006 and and has re-stocked with 500+carp ranging from 15lb to 55lb, including two 50’s, sixteen mid-40’s, around 320 fish from 25lb to 40lb, and approximately 100 fish up to 25lb. Excellent stock levels that are reflected in the catches.
