Robin Getting Involved | Carp Fishing in France

The Lake Rules

Here at Les Burons, we don't like to bombard our anglers with loads of rules and regs. However, for the safety and health of our fish, there are some guidelines that must be followed. 

You are welcome to join us at the beginning of your French carp fishing holiday from 1pm. Please do not arrive any earlier than this time, as you may encroach on another party's holiday.


Holiday bookings run from Saturday to Saturday and we ask you to vacate by 10am on your final day.

This is the serious part of the site.
