Les Rivets Lake

Set in the beautiful National Park of the Puisaye region of the Yonne, Approx 8 km's from St Fargeau, and 40km's West of Auxerre.

The lake has 10 man-made swims , 8 of these are double swims which gives comfort for 8 angler, and can take up to 10 anglers without a problem.  

The Lake is spring and river fed and is a closed water with night fishing allowed.

There is plenty of tree cover and the bottom of the lake is sand and has some gravel areas.

The depth of this lake is from 4 feet at the shallow end and up to 17 feet deep at the dam end and the average depth is over 7 feet deep.

Swim 1 is only 60 metres from the house, far enough way not been on top of the property.  There is also a path all round the lake and for moving tackle around we have a mini tractor and trailer.

Due the problems with the Dam in 2014 we have had all the trees and roots remove from the dam area and re-sloped the front of the dam. We have also re-new the stones to improve slope erosion control.  We have rebuilt all the swims and built a new shower / toilet block. The trees round the lake have also been cut back to allow the angler easier casting, but keeping the shade for the hot summer months.
