River and lake fishing

On the Rivière Sauvage wild river, or along the banks of the Trieux, you’re spoilt for a choice of fishing spots

Guingamp - Baie de Paimpol is one of the best places for salmonids !

Our region is ideal for migratory fish. Brown trout and wild salmon are the emblematic species to be found in the Léguer and the Trieux.

All sorts of techniques can be used. Natural bait or toc fishing, casting and of course fly-fishing will help you catch a variety of wild fish. Several marked fishing paths have been established on these rivers, including the Pêche Passion de Kernansquillec. The 2-km ‘no-kill’ section, situated in a Natura 2000 classified site, is recognised for its high quality.

In 2017, the Léguer obtained the distinction of being awarded the European ‘Rivières Sauvages’’ Wild Rivers label in recognition of its natural and unspoilt qualities. It also launched a trial unique in France - ‘no-kill’ salmon fishing on a large part of the river.  Any fisherman who wishes to adhere to the principal agrees to return the fish to the water. Sustainable, high quality fishing!

The Léguer is one of the most beautiful rivers in Brittany. Classified as a ‘Wild River’ under the ‘Rivières Sauvages’ programme in 2017, the quality of its water is particularly appreciated by the salmonid family !

The Trieux, a top spot for salmon-fishing

The Trieux is one of the biggest rivers in the Côtes d’Armor, and well-known for salmon-fishing. Please note that it is necessary to obtain a special fishing permit.
