Fishing on lake of Sarrans
Sarrans Lake is a 35km long 1000ha artificial lake with a dam. Its steep banks are almost entirely covered in trees and lie in a beautiful protected natural setting.
There is a pleasant picturesque spot where the banks are less steep making them ideal for swimming, fishing and launching boats on the tip of the Laussac peninsula (500m from the campsite entrance). The distance can be longer or shorter depending on hydroelectric requirements and the water level which varies year to year.
Guests can reach the lake banks by the campsite via Reception. We recommend you do not walk straight from the pitches as the banks are steep.
It is free to launch or moor your own motorboat. For your convenience, we hire out spots on the pontoon at the campsite entrance (booking recommended).
Sarrans is a 2nd category lake teeming with mainly carnivorous fish (perch, pike and zander) surrounded by stunning untamed scenery from Viadène to Carladez.
“The hard-to-access steep banks are for the better of the lake’s wealth of fish”
“La pêche et les poissons” – March 2007
It’s better to have a boat to reach the depths, mass of dead wood and cliff drops. Bank fishing can be very rewarding.
Over 12s must have their permit (full tax + seal) but you can buy day or “holiday” cards.
