The fish breeding population

The three lakes of the Foret d'Orient offer possibilities for exceptional fishing, thanks to a rigorous management of the piscicural fauna. This is demonstrated by a 39 pounds pike caught in 1993. Pikes, perches, carps are the most sought-after fishes. However, the lakes are also rich in stocks of roaches, tenches, perches, trouts, sanders and carps.
