FishingBéarn is dotted with lakes and small streams. Nearly 300 km of rivers and streams (1st and 2nd category) allow brown trout, rainbow trout and others to be caught. Beginners and seasoned fishermen will find great joy in our rivers. We also offer something that is rare in France,a "No Kill " course.(catch and release) at the lakes of Barthes at Biron. The basin of the Baïses and other tributaries of the Gave extend over the slopes separating the valley of the Gave de Pau and that of the Gave d’Oloron. You can have a spot of quiet fishing.
If you like it more sporty, the Gave de Pau is 2nd category from Lescar to Peyrehorade: carp, pike, pikeperch... There are many wild banks along the gave. A paradise for fishermen !
