Go fishing in the Vaud Alps

Fishing in the mountain lakes and rivers of the Vaud Alps strongly links the fisherman to nature.

Fishing is like an escape that we share with ourselves or with those who are dear to us. The moment spent in nature calls for a return to the sources that connects to the present moment.

Dotted with numerous lakes and rivers, the Vaud Alps are a haven of pleasure for all fishing enthusiasts. With a fishing licence, cast your line and wait. The air is fresh, this downtime is pleasant, as is the expectation of seeing a trout or a perch wriggle at the end of the line. It is then up to you whether or not to release your fish…

The fishing spots in the Vaud Alps can be found in places that are both relaxing, along a river, and majestic, on the shore of a glacial lake in the mountains. Note the beauty of the place while scanning the body of water.
