First time at Etang Hirondelle and what a fabulous, beautiful lake !
The lake is stunning, the cottage far exceeded our expectations and the facilities were spot on. Glen keeps the lake pristine. This venue is so peaceful and tranquil with an abundance of wildlife.
Fishing was challenging with the weather topping 30°c everyday and day time was to hot to fish. The pool was great and a welcome relief from the heat.
Despite the weather we still caught some great fish, concentrating on lake in the evenings through to the morning. Glen's pellet and maize made a difference, in total 20 fish caught, 11 Commons biggest 20lbs 8ozs.... 5 Mirrors biggest was 30lbs 8ozs, 3 Sturgeon biggest 20lbs, we had never caught a sturgeon before, what a fight they give ! Stunning Grass carp 24.5lbs they go mental!
We will definitily be back.

We have been "fishing with the Millers" for many years, this is our 4th visit to Etang Hirondelle. This time we stayed for two weeks. This is such a beautiful place, the angling is amazing and the lake perfect. The villa is full of charm and we love it !
Linda's "Meals on Reels" are fantastic and very welcome at the end of a fabulous day.
The weather this visit has been hot so sunning by the pool has been an added bonus.
Fish wise........To many to count. Most of the fish were caught in the evenings due to the incredible weather? Best 3x 30LBS+, 10x 20lbs+, 4x 19lbs+ Sturgeons plus original stock. Using Glen's House Pellet and Maize works a treat.
Glen & Linda are wonderful people, perfect hosts and have given us loads of incredible memories from our holidays, thankd you just doesn't seem to be enough.......Can't wait till our return.

It was great to see Maggie & Derek Stritton this week.....Here are their comments, photos to follow:
21 - 27 May
As always we had a great time. The combination of very hot weather and post spawning mean't the fish didn't come out to paly as much as usual and only fishing days. Never the less we still had carp up to 31lbs, Sturgeon up to 21lbs.
Thanks for the dinners, Excellent as always.
See you again in September.

Sat 8 - Sat 22 April
Once again Lac Hirondelle looked a picture when we arrived and accomodation was clean and welcoming as we have come to expect from Linda and Glen.
The weather was unusual for the time of the year with temps in mid-twenties in the sun but only about 8deg out of it. No rain except a two minute shower and water level was a bit down.
Nights were very cold with frost on occasion. However the sunrises were majestic with mist over the lake and an eery feeling first thing, which I enjoyed.
Water was very cold 8-10deg and fish reluctant to feed, even the roach!
Used a sonar device to scan the bottom and found that the depth varied from a few inches upto 16ft.
In the sun fish were basking but nothing seemed to tempt them. Lots of blossom and insects being blown onto the lake so perhaps they were eating that.
We did manage some carp, the best being a mirror of 32lb, but sport was better with the Pike, several around the 8lb mark were caught.
We did see deer in the early morning and late evening and red squirrels were abundant. there was also evidence of Boar in the woods. Cuckoos were heard as was the Golden Oriol.
A very welcome break after a trying year and perhaps the fish will be more obliging when we come back in October.
Once again, a big thank you to Glen and Linda for all their help and good luck to all who follow us.
