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.

Comfortable Swims

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!
