Brown trout and brook trout can be fished in the local lakes, rivers and mountain streams.
Fishing permits can be obtained from tourist offices throughout the Val d’Arly.
A favourite place for anglers who enjoy fishing in mountain lakes, with two competitions organised in the summer. The lake at Plan d'Essert is an isolated site, 4km from the village centre. A perfect rest stop for hikers too.
Come and fish in this little lake surrounded by pine trees and enjoy the peaceful mountain setting where you can fish for brown trout.
Fishing allowed from 7am to nightfall.
At the summit of Mont-Lachat, you will find the Lachat lake where swimming is not permitted but which is a brilliant private fishing site. BBQ facilities available.
Downstream, the Arly is a fierce, powerful mountain stream where the trout definitely merit being caught because access to some stretches is quite difficult.
Fishing in the torrent "Le Jaillet" from Le Plan.
