Fishing in Brittany, France

Brittany has some of the best fishing rivers and lakes in France, as well as something like a third of France's coastline, giving a great variety for keen anglers.

Fishing Permit

Fishing permits can be bought for a day, two week or annual period, and will cover fishing in the whole department. So if you buy a permit in Morbihan, you can fish throughout Morbihan. In addition you can also pay an extra fee to upgrade your permit to cover all of Brittany. The two week fishing permit used to only be available during the summer months.....it is now available all year round!

An option is to pay an extra 15 Euros and you'll be able to use your fishing permit in almost everywhere in France. (a list of participating departments will be made available asap.)

Where to Fish in Brittany, France

Brittany has some of the best fishing rivers and lakes in France, as well as something like a third of France's coastline, giving a great variety for keen anglers.

Fresh Water River Fishing

Rivers like the Blavet are vastly under utilized. There are very few boats using the Blavet and river side access is excellent. The river is of a fairly consistent depth and width making it ideal for match fishing or fishing festivals.

The table below shows the main fishing rivers in the Morbihan department of Brittany, listing the relevant fish species that can be found in each river with a column to indicate the abundance of those fish ('3' indicates a very abundant fish whereas '1' indicates that the fish is present but not necessarily in huge numbers).
