Our lakes and rivers, both calm and turbulent, are a vast playground for anglers. The pure waters flowing down the slopes of the volcano are teeming with fish : trout, grayling, gudgeon, etc. The river Alagnon is classified as one of the most beautiful waterways in Europe, and has witnessed the return of salmon in recent years.
