Enjoy the fishing beauty
Reputed for its wild nature and its fishy ponds, the Dombes is a very much appreciated fishing territory.
A ” no kill ” fishing
Here, at the Domaine de la Dombes, we are in favour of the respect of the environment. It is the reason why fishing is in NO KILL. For those who don’t know the slang of fishing, it is the obligation to throw the fish back in the water. Get more information about this practice.
What do we fish at the Domaine?
The pond of the Domaine is 8ha and one of the most profound of the Dombes. Moreover, the fish species are numerous!
You will be able to catch:
- black bass
You will maybe encounter a catfish, considered as damaging, this specie will exceptionnally not be thrown back in the water.
Come to the reception, where we will invite you to read and sign the internal rules and buy your fishing permit.
Your vehicle needs to be parked on the exterior parking lot (no car allowed on the pond dyke). You need to walk 5 min to get to the pond and you will have benches at your disposal on the dyke, to identify the different fishing stations.
Trolley at your disposal to help with the transport of your equipment (to bring back after you get installed)
