Fishing in the west of Paris is great!

Despite a very highly urbanized environment, our region has a fairly dense and high quality river network thanks to riverbanks on the Seine, as well as on water bodies, carried out by the Hauts-de-Seine Departmental Council and the City of Paris, in close collaboration with our Fishing Association.


It is more than 66 km of riverbanks on the river public domain, open to the fishing of the carp of night, and a total of 13 ponds of 1 to 21 ha that we offer to our "urban" fishermen of all specialties in all its forms : Angling, streetfishing, carp fishing, catfish fishing, urban fly-fishing...


Diversity is also at the rendezvous: we count 32 species of fish in the Seine and 24 on the ponds with, every year, a number of beautiful catches and "exceptional" subjects which, after having made the joy of our fishermen and the traditional photo, return in full form in their element ...


Fishing police, defense of the aquatic environment and the interests of fishermen through rigorous management and quality fish restocking, a permanent animation of our clubs and our fishing school, especially for young people, are the ransom of success of our association always true to its motto: "For the living water !".
