Fishing in Chartreuse

The best fishing spots

Good news for those who wish to discover fishing in the Chartreuse: the mushroom corners never reveal themselves, but the fishing spots are warmly shared!

Here is a selection concocted by our generous local fishermen :

No-kill (catch and release) from Le Guiers – Miribel les Echelles

An emblematic course in the clear waters of the Guiers, where you can fish for trout of good size… but be careful, they are educated so they are not easily caught!

All techniques fishing with a single barbless hook.
Any fish caught must be put back into the water with the greatest possible care.

No-kill of the Gorges du Guiers Mort – Saint Laurent du Pont

It is a gorges course, sometimes steep and hilly. You will fish in the heart of impressive landscapes.

All techniques fishing with a single barbless hook.
Any fish caught must be released with the utmost care.

Fario trout fishing on the Guiers Mort, ONF – Saint Laurent du Pont course.

A journey in an exceptional setting, on a section labelled Rivière Sauvage: the river is breathtakingly beautiful, the water extraordinarily clear.

To preserve this exceptional wealth, the number of anglers is limited to 6 per day.

Gorges du Frou, on the Guiers Vif – Saint Christophe sur Guiers

Vertiginous canyon, with only a few accesses. The trout here are well deserved! A place that makes more than one fisherman dream, but beware, the course being uneven, it is preferable to go there in pairs.

No-kill de Saint Béron, on the Guiers downstream from Chailles – St Béron

Here, the Guiers become wider and alternate between fast areas and large pits. You will find very beautiful fario trout and common grayling in a privileged setting.

All techniques fishing with a single barbless hook.
Any fish caught must be released with the greatest possible care.

Special fly-fishing: the Guiers – Saint Genix sur Guiers course

We advise you, if you can, to go there at the opening of the common grayling fishing season (early May): this is when the common grayling population comes up from the Rhône.
