Fishing

Sport and relaxation

Alone, in pairs, with family or friends, take advantage of the waters of the Montagne Noire and Lauragais to fish. 


Our fishing sites

and their diversity

No less than six lakes, two canals, a river and a fish farm will allow you to indulge your passion. Whether you are passionate about fishing for small, medium or "big" freshwater fish, you will see a number of them tickle your line.



Whether your favourite technique is fishing by landings, hits, jumps, flies, flies, throws or trolls... everything is possible in our 1st and 2nd category bodies of water, on the plain or in the mountains.


Peace and serenity

When the wind rustles in the leaves, the birdsong, the lapping of the water, come and tease the dowel, the minnow, the roach, the pike-perch, the perch, the chub, the trout, the pike or the carp and enjoy this wonderful environment that is open to you.

General regulation

Fishing is the act of appropriating a wild fish that belongs to no one. The regulations are there to regulate this act, so that it does not endanger the resource.



It applies to all places where fish are supposed to move. That is, all watercourses, canals, streams and water bodies, except those where wild fish cannot pass.


The number of rods is limited to one for Category 1 streams and bodies of water, and four for Category 2 streams and bodies of water, each equipped with 2 hooks or 3 artificial flies and placed close to the fisherman.



The number of pike-perch and black bass catches allowed per recreational fisherman per day shall be three, including a maximum of two pike-perch.



For salmonids other than salmon and sea trout, the number of catches allowed per fisherman per day shall be 10.


Main rules of freshwater fishing

Fishing is allowed all year round, except during certain periods for certain fish. The legal catch sizes are also regulated, depending on the species, which must be immediately returned to the water within a certain length.



Fishing is allowed 1/2 hour before sunrise and 1/2 hour after sunset. However, the prefect may, by order, authorize night fishing for carp at any time in certain watercourses (possible at Lac de Lenclas).
