For River Fishing, the spots are of course “la petite Creuse” with its wild trout but also its small whitewater fish, gudgeon, minnows… but also “La Creuse” for carnivores.

2 other developed bodies of water are also conducive to pond fishing as well as water activities and swimming: the water plan of the Prugne and that of Mortroux.

Water plan in Mortroux

The pond of the Wood in Mortroux is a charming bucolic site that invites to picnics and fishing parties. Fishing is regulated on this pond. It is open only on weekends and holidays.

Plan d’eau de la Prugne

This pond is rather reserved for carp, tench, roach … Perfectly equipped, it also has a parking lot adapted for people with reduced mobility and handi fishing pontoons. Children, as well as adults, will be able to discover the fauna and flora thanks to the playful course around this theme.

Dam of Champsanglard

There is also a 55-hectare reservoir at the level of the dam of Champsanglard. The lake of Champsanglard is located on the bed of the Creuse River. It is very popular with nature lovers and fishermen, for its wild character and its wooded and diversified landscapes with large steep cliffs. It has a good fish density in white fish (roach, bream, rotengle), a very remarkable population of carnivores (pike perch, pike, perch) and cyprinids.

Good to know: A boat ramp has been installed at Chambon. Ideal for fishing enthusiasts
