For more than forty years, the fishing company of the mount Dore organizes a weekend fishing under the ice at Lake Guéry, end of February / beginning of March. This year, this will be the weekend of the 5, 6 and 7 March 2016

At the gates of the solid mass of Sancy, at 1/2 hour of Clermont-Ferrand and in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of the volcanoes of Auvergne, white fishing enthusiasts gather many (on average 300 people in recent years) and from all corners of the France and even beyond our borders and not would miss for anything in the world that appointment of the most invigorating!

Admittedly, that activity is surprising in our latitudes (unique in France) and that she has something of the great Canadian North.

On Friday afternoon or Saturday morning very early there the hole, delimit and putting a sign in his name to keep the first two days of the opening. On average the hole must be 25 cm in diameter (dug using a crowbar) for a height of ice that ranges from 15-20 cm to 60-80 cm depending on the year. It’s a perfect exercise to warm up on the ice of 25 hectares of the Guéry.

Then, you must install fishing gear from Andyoutdoor: launched small, stick with a simple reel, float, 1.50 m of wire. and he has to wait for the fish to bite. These are mainly the trout fario or rainbow, the char and salmon of fountain. But caution must be taken to keep the hole open, including using a skimmer, allowing to evacuate the crystals that form on the surface.

We can then take a course of fishing with the Russians and Canadians, experienced in the art of ice fishing, and who were quick to catch their quota.

The time for waiting is also the friendly meetings and discussions under a makeshift shelter over a glass of mulled wine and a slice of sausage. Beyond a simple part of fishing, it’s a pleasure shared, a meeting of the more user-friendly.

It is not necessary to be a great fisherman to practice ice fishing, but for novices, the most convenient is to use a guide who will introduce to the ice fishing and provide them with the necessary equipment (request from the Tourist Office).

Everything is done to facilitate access to ice fishing: a specific fishing card allows any person, subject to be fitted, to taste the leisure of the Inuit for €25. You can get there the same day.

A stay discovery of ice fishing is planned in collaboration between the Tourist Office and a local travel, ALUNA travel agency. For more information follow this link: stay fishing 2016
