River Lot Special
About River Lot Special
River fishing, especially on the Lot, is very different from fishing on a lake. It takes a lot of knowledge and experience to be able to fish in the different circumstances. There are many obstacles and the water can suddenly start flowing fast so adapting to the situation infant of you is essential to get the most from this venue. There is a lot of carp on the Lot, but to catch them, you have to make a serious effort, but the rewards are certainly there to be had!
Joachim Stelma is a Dutch fishing guide on one of the most famous rivers in France, The Lot. For years he had been coming to France for at least ten weeks a year to catch carp. He also speaks good English. He has been coming to the Lot for years. He knows how to find just about every path that leads to the river. It is a hobby within a hobby for him. He wants to know everything, he finds out everything. It has led to a lot of knowledge about the river. Think of water levels / currents, fishing techniques (per season) and especially the carp stock per weir section. With this in mind booking this option on the River Lot gives you a massive advantage as Joachim’s life long knowledge is available to you as our customer.
It is possible to rent two different boats. The F818 or the River Lot Special. Both are large, spacious and comfortable fishing vessels and fishing by boat is certainly an added bonus to this unique river fishing experience.
The Lot is a rain river that has its source in the central massif. From there the river meanders west where it eventually flows into the Garonne. Between origin and confluence you will encounter the most beautiful places such as the capital of the department of Cahors and the slightly lesser known cute town of Cajarc. The most beautiful places, however, are Saint Cirq Lapopie and Puy l’Eveque, both of which are among the most beautiful places in France. This is possibly the most beautiful setting you will find for a memorable trophy shot. If you prefer to be even further from civilization, then the Lot is a true paradise. There are plenty of places where no one ever comes and nature still goes its own way. Lot of Carp is located in Albas, a village in the most beautiful part of the Lot. In the nearby towns Prayssac, Puy L’Eveque and Luzech everything is available: supermarkets, petrol stations, good bakers and of course big carp! In principle, we rent our boats between Cahors and Fumel. You can park your car with us then you are free to take the boats down or up river in search of some incredible fishing.

Carp fishing on the Lot
The current on The Lot is quite fickle. Even in the summer after weeks without rainfall, it can suddenly start flowing very fast. When is the best time? There is really no answer to this. Every period has its charms and you can catch well in every period! The least amount of current is during the summer months. Spring is often a bit more changeable in terms of weather. Autumn is very stable and due to the climate in this region it is very pleasant until November!
One section of river is not the same as another, they differ in length, depth, soil type, vegetation and the quantity and size of the carp that live there. Some areas mainly house elongated scaly carp. In other areas, large mirrors are in the majority. There are also pieces that have a combination of these two. This will be discussed before arrival so that you have the best chance of exactly what you are looking for.
