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.

Andy T's first visit of the year and it didn't disappoint. Fantastic weather for the end of March although the water was still cold. Fishing wise caught a cracking Sturgeon at 21 lbs, Roach, Pike. The carp didn't seem to be interested although there was alot of movement around the lake but as a pleasure angler I have had a great holiday. Many thanks Linda for your lovely dinners and Glen, see you both in May.

“My dad and i were fishing for the second time on Hirondelle. This time we were prepared because we knew which bait they liked and we knew were they the fishing spots would be…
Wrong!, we had to find new spots and that is how fishing is supposed to be!
After we found the new spots we caught 13 fish to over 17.25 kg. My dad(84 years of age) was the one with the biggest of the session J.
We had a great time and we will never forget our time at Lac Hirondelle!
We will miss the nice talks with Glen.

Lac Hirondelle, where memories are made and heroes(see pic 889 of my dad) are born!!”


Linda/Glenn,
Once again, thank you for all your kindness and we wish you all the best!
