Fishing in the Monteynard Lake

On the shores of Lake Monteynard-Avignonet,( lac de Monteynard-Avignonet) the atmosphere is permeated with the excitement of fishermen and sailors preparing for a day on the water.

It is here that the Approved Association for Fishing and Protection of the Aquatic Environment (AAPPMA) of Monteynard Avignonet takes charge of the management of the body of water, from its headquarters located at the Town Hall of Treffort 38650.

For fishing enthusiasts, the lake offers a multitude of opportunities, with the possibility of going by boat in search of the coveted fish.

Fishermen are allowed to sail under certain strict conditions.

However, it is important to note that night fishing is not permitted, probably for reasons of safety and preservation of the ecosystem.

If you would like to learn more about fishing in the region and the local association, the AAPPMA de Monteynard-Avignonet, you can visit their website for all the necessary information.

As for navigation on the lake, it is also subject to strict rules.

Boats are only permitted to navigate between the 468mNGF and 490mNGF elevations, and navigation at night is strictly prohibited.

However, fans of towed water activities can enjoy the lake, although this is subject to certain conditions.

Launch points are available at Treffort and Mayres-Savel, offering some flexibility to sailors.

Navigation rules, including speed limits and prohibited areas, are regulated by the Special Regulations of the Navigation Police (RPPN) of Lake Monteynard.

To ensure you meet all legal and safety requirements, it is recommended to consult the Good Driving Passport, where all this information is summarized clearly.

Swimming is prohibited on the entire Monteynard-Avignonet lake.

This restriction may be due to several factors, including concerns about swimmer safety, protection of the lake ecosystem, or other local regulations.

It is important to respect these prohibitions for reasons of safety and preservation of the environment. Swimming in areas where it is prohibited may result in health risks, as well as fines or other legal consequences.
