Fishing in the Vézère and Auvézère and Coly Rivers
Our territory is blessed with three rivers suitable for fishing, each offering a luxurious setting in the middle of a wild and at the same time peaceful nature.
- La Vézère: 2nd category. From Terrasson-Lavilledieu to Montignac on the Vézère, the minimum catch sizes are: pike: 60 cm / pikeperch: 50 cm / perch: 15 cm.
- L'Auvézère: 2nd category. Marking the limit between the Corrèze and the Dordogne, the Auvézère is full of fish such as barbel, vandoise, chub, roach, gudgeon, minnow, pike, perch, carp.
- Le Coli: 1st category. The Coly, a tributary stream of the Vézère and known for its siphon, the longest in Europe and the second longest in the world, is mainly populated by trout.
Several lakes are well suited to angling, the most common fish being carp and trout:
