If you search the web under pecheur info dordogne you will find various regulations. If you want to fish in e.g. 24210 Thenon(market day Tuesday), you have to obtain your licence from the 'ti Cafe opposite the mairie. Last person we know to use it had to pay either for a 2-week holidaymakers licence or a seasonal one.

There's a lakeside cafe open daily in the summer from noon to last customer, which doesn't seem to disturb the fisherman: just google guingetang thenon for details and photos. Although Thenon is about 20 miles from Le Bugue, I think other villages have similar arrangements.

Good luck!

There's a place in Montpeyroux (24610) which has 3 fishing lakes with carp, roach, black bass and carp d'amour - grass carp. No licence required, as it's private. Nice quiet setting.
The fish aren't giants, but a decent size (up to 70 - 80cm).

When you go into any Fishing tackle shop to buy your permit, they will give you a map with all the informations as to where you can fish, and when. You need a permit to fish in the Dordogne River and the Garde de Peche regularly patrols the river by boat, to check out permits.

you are right on the vézere river at le Bugue, one of the best rivers in the area, well worth buying a licence, you can then fish just about anywhere along the river

Try "Martin's lakes" near Montpon, three good lakes, loads of fish.

Hi Mark


I'm in the proccess of moving to France and have just seen your reply ref the Vezere. I looked at a few times in the autum and thought how fantastic it looked. I saw plenty of Chub, do you know what other species are present. I'm really keen to find some Barbel, I will be living near the Drone close to Brantome, ahve you any idea waht that holds, I've seen plenty of Chub and Roach, but wondered what else it may hold.
