Fishing for carp at Châlons in Champagne


Le grand Jard, the arm of the Canal

Arm of the Canal du Jard in Châlons en Champagne

An arm of the canal in Châlons en Champagne where the carps are present and of good size (averages:12 to 25 kg).
Fish especially the edge of the island at about 2 meters maximum from the shore.
Be careful with the departures, because the carps have the annoying habit to go to nest. in the many submerged stumps and branches.
As soon as the weather is nice, you become the attraction of the walkers who, when faced with the deployment of your equipment, do not hesitate to to come and keep you company and it's not unpleasant to be able to share his passion.

In the summer in July and August, fishing is practically impossible with the new port and nautical activities that dominate the park.
Beware, camping and night fishing are forbidden on this part of the canal!

The Saint Hubert ponds

The ponds of St Hubert de Châlons in Champagne

Les Étangs saint Hubert is composed of several bodies of water where the presence of specimens weighing more than 20 kg makes it worthwhile to linger.
There are many productive jobs, especially in the undergrowth.
I am particularly fond of the "coup du soir" but in high season (May, June, August, September), it is not uncommon to play all day long.
Don't hesitate to provoke them in their lairs!
The site Aux Amis Pêcheurs Cheminots St Hubert is private property and traffic is regulated.
All visitors who do not hold a fishing card are obliged to park in the car parks at the entrance.
Night fishing allowed (ask for information). It is imperative to respect the house rules (no wild camping and no fire on the ground!).

The river Marne

The fishing pressure is relatively low and the carp are not particularly wary. The common carp are dominant and carp weighing over 20kg have been known to caress the landing mats.
The main difficulty of fishing lies in the wind and the current, which is quite strong except in the summer because after the dam the water level is often very low.
The carps being cut to fight against the current, I advise you to strengthen your lines and your assemblies.
For the positions, I recommend fishing upstream of the dam, where the water is deeper and the positions more accessible.
Priority should be given to places sheltered from the current, a dead arm, a hole followed by a shallow bottom and crowded places (submerged branches, weed beds, nenuphars).
Night fishing for carp is allowed all year round on both sides of the river on a stretch of 167.396 kilometres of the department.
