Fishing conditions in the Gardon de Mialet

On the downstream course of the Gardons cévenols, the Gardon de Mialet is fed by several tributaries. In a less steep relief, its course spreads over large gravel pits, accessible on foot in the summer and which swell into navigable white water from September to June.

The waters of the Gardon are clear, ideal for sight fishing. There is less trout fishing than upstream, but many species of fish take advantage of the presence of fairly deep pools, even in summer. The fishing techniques used on the Gardon de Mialet are also varied: natural larvae, toc, lures, minnow or fly fishing.

A young fishing association has been formed in Mialet: dedicated to fishing in the Vallée des Camisards, it organises initiations to fishing techniques, particularly fly fishing, and ensures the protection of fish species through stocking procedures.

What fish can you catch
at the campsite?

In low and high season, the waters of the Gardon de Mialet are ideal for fishing. In season, there are good populations of barbel, blageon and gudgeon. The fario trout are also present, although a little less numerous than upstream. They mix with carnivorous fish, which become more and more numerous as the watercourses widen, fed by numerous streams before merging. Perch can be caught with their feet in the water or by wading. Lures also regularly attract beautiful pike. With natural baits in shallow water, you can also tease barbel.
