Rules and Regulations

Fishing in the area is regulated by 3 local bodies, known as APPMA, which are responsible for promoting and developing fishing for pleasure but also the protection and management of the lakes and the fish stocks. The APPMA issue the fishing permits which are compulsory for fishing in these lakes.

There are 3 types of fishing permit:

  • The « Pass Pêche 29 » is for non-residents of Finistère. It is an annual permit costing 40 € and allows the holder to fish almost all the rivers and lakes within the departement.
  •   The « Carte Vacances » costs 30€ and allows the holder to fish for 15 days between 15th June and 31st December on all the watercourses within the area managed by a particular APPMA. The additional payment of a 10€ federal fee extends the fishing area to the whole of West Cornouaille.
  •   A day permit is available for visitors. It costs 10€ and is valid for all the watercourses within an area managed by an AAPMA
