With a large network of rivers, Conflent is a corner of paradise for those who are passionate about fishing or nature. Amidst the sumptuous landscape and benefitting from a clement climate, there is water everywhere, abundant with fish. Here, wild trout reigns.

Practical information and the environment

The crystal clear water, silvery water falls, rivers and mountain lakes offer everyone, beginner or expert, a variety of fishing experiences: fly-fishing, line fishing, bait fishing, angling, fishing with worms...

The lake at Prades, and the Vinça dam, lend themselves to beginners or family fishing while the more serious fisherman may prefer to fish in the river. There are some catch and release areas, and other areas of the region which combine sport, nature and leisure.
