Welcome to the site of la Saule Paquot! 

This stunning, private 12 acre Lake was dug out for gravel extraction in the early 90’s and has matured well over the years, and now holds Carp up to 66lb with an average of 45lb+.  The lake is situated in idyllic countryside surrounded by woodlands.

The depth varies from 1m to 4.5m depending on the time of year. There are 2 islands which are an obvious attraction and can be reached easily. The bottom of the lake is made up of silt, gravel, clay, weed, bars, plateaus and feeding holes.
The lake has 14 pegs/swims, 3 can be used as double swims.  All the swims have varying features to explore.


Take a look around on our website and if you feel the urge to go out and catch some of our beautiful signature carp, do not hesitate to contact us for a booking, or further information.

Are you up for the challenge?

We look forward to welcoming you in person, soon, so do not miss out and make your booking now!

La Saule Paquot is nestled in the famous Champagne Region of the Marne, between forests, fields and vineyard hills. The lake is easily found and sits just outside the small hamlet of Heiltz L`eveque.

It is one of the most popular areas for the English, Dutch and Belgians to fish for carp. La Saule Paquot is one of the gravel pits that has been transformed into a carp lake, many years ago. The property is well taken care of and improvements are being made all the time. The water is crystal clear with neatly landscaped pegs and a home from home lodge. The entire complex is securely fenced.
We are  available to assist you and provide you with tips & tricks 24/7.
