The fishing places

Lakes and streams criss-cross all over the Lauragais. Mainly for the purpose of irrigation, drinking water and water sports. Many fishermen enjoy the pleasure of having a good time around the water sources where fish are abundant.


The Canal du Midi: a paradise for fishermen

A unique place for pleasure and walking, the canal du Midi, is also a paradise for fishermen. In the generous shade of the plane trees which protect the Canal pikes, perche, eels, carp, bream, roach and catfish provide varied and often very fruitful fishing.

The streams of the Black Mountain are the source of the Canal du Midi and offer access to relaxing fishing around Saint Ferréol Lake, or for more sporty fishing there are the rivers and streams of the middle mountain.

The streams from the Black Mountain and on the plain are waters of first category.


Fishing in lakes: beautiful countryside

On the Lauragais plains and by the Thésauque, Ganguise, Saint-Ferréol (compulsory fishing stamp), Orme Blanc and Régambert lakes, there is a rich and varied fish fauna, in a quiet and restful atmosphere.

At the reservoir "En Brunet" in Belleserre (2nd category lake.), you can fish for pikes, perches, trouts, carps, and roaches.

The Lenclas Lake (2nd category lake) has a relaxing initiation fishing course.


Fishing in rivers: off the beaten track

In the Lauragais several rivers allow fishing, in particular the river Hers, emblematic of the area that has undeniable charm.

The Hers is the most important tributary of the river Ariège, appreciated by fishermen over the ages for its abundant fishing.
