Streams, lakes and rivers etc. The Ubaye region offers a variety of fishing experiences, ensuring a memorable outing for all fishing enthusiasts, whether novices or expert.

Where to fish

River fishing

Our valley has nearly 220 km of rivers, of which the Ubaye is the most famous. Ubayette, Parpaillon, Bachelard... its tributaries are also well worth a visit.

You can carry out all types of fishing techniques on these rivers, whether you are fishing with a jigger, a toc or a fly.

Brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout can all be found in these rivers.

In Lake Serre-Ponçon

The Serre-Ponçon lake is one of the largest reservoirs in Europe. Fed by the Durance and Ubaye rivers, it covers an area of 2,800 ha and reaches a depth of 90 m.

The Serre-Ponçon lake is home to many emblematic species: pike, trout, Arctic char. You can quite frequently come across unusual specimens!

In the mountain lakes

Ideal for mixing fishing, hiking and... bivouac!

Located at an altitude of over 1800 m, these regularly stocked 1st category waters represent small havens of peace in the middle of nature.

Among the high altitude lakes of the Ubaye, are Lauzanier lake, the Lac Noir, the Marinet lake and the Lac des Neuf Couleurs (the highest lake in the Alpes de Haute-Provence, at 2,840m of altitude).

You will find lots of species there, including common trout, Arctic char, cristivomers and small minnows. It's ideal for family fishing with children!
