About the Lake
Moulin de Passais is a mature 5 acre lake heavily tree
lined and sheltered from the elements. Moulin is the
French word for 'Mill' and the water from the lake would
have once been used to power the old mill workings
in our home. The lake dates back over 70 years and
operates a traditional monk system that allows us to
drain the lake and manage the water efficiently.
With good depth variations and large areas of both
deep and shallow water, the lake has an excellent
climate for the fish and with our careful management,
the carp are prospering in this excellent environment.
With 8 well thought out swims including 3 that can
accomodate 2 anglers, we have tried to offer a range of
different angling options that range from close in stalking
to longer range casting and bait boat applications.
All of the swims and pathways are laid with a generous
ayer of woodchip that has established over several seasons
of steady application which means water drainage is
excellent and we guarantee no muddy boots at Passais.
Even in the harshest conditions, a pair of Crocs would
keep you nice and clean!
