Fishing in the Pyrenees can be either Fly or Toc, and there are many places locally to experience the wilderness and tranquillity on offer. Fishing here in the Pyrenees can be challenging but also rewarding for any experienced or enthusiastic angler.
Le Ger, a stretch of river with 10 km of fishing. Les Job 19 km of river available to fish. La Garonne along with 62 km of mountain streams to search for that idyllic pool.
The rivers travel through many pretty villages including Aspet, Arbas, Lespiteau, Soueich, Encausse les Thermes, Milhas, Juzet d’Izaut, Razeceillé, Sengouagnet and Izaut de l’hotel.
A fishing guide can be arranged while you are here to make the most of the local knowledge.
We are spoilt with the lakes near us, each of them offering something different.
Lac de Gery at Saint Beat, offers fishing for 2 rods and up to 8 fish for just 10 euros. There are also other activities if you want to spend the day there with the family to keep everyone happy. Pony rides, boat hire and swimming is also permitted, without surveillance. There is a cafe and restaurant but if you wanted to take a picnic you can also find a shady spot under the trees.
Lac de Séde at Saint Gaudens and Lac de la Hierie at Labarthe Inard both offer fishing, with pontoons.
Lac saint Pé-d’Ardet is a nature reserve and allows fishing just a couple of months of the year, but also a great place to go to see the flora and fauna and swim in nature. There are no lifeguards here if you swim.
More information about fishing in France can be obtained from the Haute Garonne Fishing Federation.
Permits can be bought locally, or from Carte de Peche.
