A remarkable fishing area stretching from the valley to the mountain lakes

Fishing friends, you will be spoilt in the Upper Tarentaise! With nearly 300 km of river bank where you will be able to indulge your passion, covered by the Association Agréée pour la Pêche et la Protection du Milieu Aquatique (AAPPMA) Lacs et torrents (The fishing and waterways protection association for lakes and mountain streams).
 

Incorporating the municipality of Bourg Saint Maurice - Les Arcs, l’AAPPMA Lacs et Torrents covers the Upper Isère basin between the massifs of the Vanoise and the Beaufortain and the Franco-Italian peaks.

In such a huge fishing area, all types and techniques of fishing are possible, for the energetic fisherman who enjoys hiking, or for those who are seeking a more relaxed form of fishing in easily accessible spots.
