Grosley Sur Risle Lake - Big Lake 1
Grosley offers outstanding carp fishing on two lakes. The fully enclosed site is situated on the Risle Vallee in the Normandy region. Driving distance from Calais is 3hours and only 1 hour drive from the port of Le Havre. The name of the lake may ring a bell to some, since it’s new management 3 years ago by Eric Touze, we are sure here at Horton Management that the quality of fishing, the facilities such as a licenced bar restaurant and on site services such as bread delivery and a tackle shop meet the standards of what our clients would expect when they book with us. The swims are regularly maintained and have picnic tables and bins to make your stay more enjoyable. Both supermarkets and petrol stations are only a 5min drive from the venue.

The lake is a mature and good looking gravel pit of 12 hectares (). With its 23 swims, it can greet in excellent conditions up to 15 anglers. It has at least 600 carp with an average over 30lb, loads of 40lb+ with some fish running to 50lb+, 7 or 8 large sturgeon, 17 gorgeous koi. The stockings have been monitored and the owner holds weekly catch reports. The lake is typical of gravel pits with a featureful bottom, islands but does not have too many snags to hinder fishing. The depths range from 1.8m to a maximum of 2.6m. The swims are all bar one easily accessible by car.
