Fishing Seasons |
We haven't been able to obtain official fishing schedules for all of the South of France, and we don't keep up with annual or seasonal changes for any of the different fishing areas. The information below should be used as a general guide only. Contact the appropriate associations or Offices de Tourisme to get the latest information.
We of course welcome any feedback, new information or criticisms you care to share with us (click Contact in the upper-right corner).
The highest-quality trout-fishing rivers are authorized for fishing from mid-March to mid-September.
Other rivers and lakes and canals (such as the Canal du Midi) are open for fishing year-round, but with many local variations.
Alpes-Maritimes Mountain Lakes
Fishing season for the high-mountain lakes is from 1 July to mid-September. The stock trout comes from the trout farms (centre de pisciculture) at Roquebillière (map).
