Carp Fishing Mayenne

Welcome to Carp Fishing Holidays at La Petite Martiniere


Welcome to our website, where we aim to provide you with all the information required for your Carp fishing holiday in France. La Petite Martinière is a small family run fishery in the Pays de la Loire region of France, we are close to the borders of Brittany and Normandy. We have no immediate neighbours, no noisy main road close by, just the gently rolling landscape. We offer exclusive use of our venue for a maximum of 3 people (whether anglers or not) to include the use of our cabin (see accommodation section for detail) and with the chance to catch excellent condition fish from our stock of over 100 nice carp whilst enjoying the exclusive use of the facilities provided. If you or your partner don’t wish to spend all of your time fishing there is plenty to do and see in the area.


2010 saw the first year that the lake was available to the general public; previously it has been for the exclusive enjoyment of friends and family, the fish have been sourced and stocked with quality, rather than size or quantity as the deciding factor, although the Carp do go to over 40lbs and Tench to 11lbs, along with size the stocking levels are generous to help with your catch rate and they do put up a fight as a recent group commented to quote "your fish are the hardest fighting carp that we have ever caught - they must be Turbo-charged fantastic sport!". Also the facilities have been built to a quality standard rather than price, so you will not be disappointed.

Lake Update 2016

We are carrying out our annual lake flush by dropping the water by 3ft which gives Marc access for cutting back and also allows the liming of the dry margins.

Swim 4 is to receive a makeover to enlarge the area for our bigger hire bivvy to sit nicely. We will also carry out some thinning out of the tree limbs.

We are expecting our new stock of 12 fish up to 40lb around 21st January 2016.
