The 120-hectare Lac de Lavacourt is a stone's throw from Paris, and is also known as the St. Cassien of Paris because of the many heavy carp. 

Officially it is a
 public water , but in reality Lavacourt (also called Etang de Moisson) with its mandatory reservation looks like a fishery. 
However, the rates are much lower than the average paid fishing water in France.
