Fishing

With a succession of still water, waterfalls or torrential currents, the rivers surrounding Murat, Allanche and Massiac, are conducive to fishing. The Alagnon is a fly-fishing river which has, as one of its benefits very pure water and is classified amongst the most beautiful waterways in Europe.  It is also possible to fish trout, grayling and gudgeon on a No Kill (1 500 m) basis at a place known as “La Paschou”. It should be noted that the salmon has returned to the Alagnon’s water since 2004.
