Predator fishing:
the great halieutic rishness of Aveyron

In the midst of exceptional natural scenery, populations of fish (zander, perch, pike and wels catfish) are the object of careful management and low pressure fishing.
In this sumptuous setting and more particularly in autumn that is often very pleasant in the Aveyron sunshine, you will have the best chance of experiencing the best of predator fishing.

Trout fishing : 
quality and diversity

The very large number of rivers and streams offered by the département’s 5 large water basins (Truyère, Lot, Aveyron, Viaur and Tarn) allows this type of fishing to be done in wild and contrasting surroundings using the ensemble of angling techniques for salmonidae.
An exemplary heritage management enables real wild trout to be traced.
