Campsite by the river ideal for fishing in Béarn – Pyrenees

Picnic and refreshment in the river by the campsite

The campsite in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques is situated on the banks of the magnificent Gave d’Oloron river. It’s the ideal setting for a family picnic, sunbathing, walking barefoot along the water’s edge, making ricochets and watching the canoes go by. After an afternoon by the lake, take a final dip in the campsite’s naturally heated pool.

Are you looking for quiet and secluded spots? We can show you some nice pebble beaches between Salies and Navarrenx. For example, in Sauveterre: with an ice cream in your hand and your feet in the water, go and discover the beach-guinguette on the water’s edge “AU FIL DE L’EAU”.

Ideal campsite for fishing in the 64

Navarrenx is the world capital of salmon fishing. This village is a must for salmon fishing in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.

Built in the 13th century, the mill dam was the first in France to be equipped with a fish pass allowing salmon to swim up this obstacle in the Gave d’Oloron.

Since the 1960s, the Masseys Pool, next to the campsite, has been a mecca for fishermen, attracting many enthusiasts.

In 2011, a device for viewing and counting migratory fish was installed. This device is a valuable aid for the Federation of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques to protect this aquatic environment.

It conveys values such as patience, perseverance and commitment. Fishing is a source of adrenaline, but also a unique immersion in nature.

Species and types of fishing in Bearn

The Gave d’Oloron flows along the campsite and is home to an exceptional treasure trove of fish, with a majority of migratory fish such as Atlantic salmon, sea trout, lamprey and shad. Many techniques and methods of fishing exist in fresh water:

  • Lure fishing: This is a widespread practice practised in Europe by anglers. A lure is a bait that looks like a fish. There are 3 categories: soft, hard and metal lures. This diversity of lures allows you to adapt to different fishing environments.
  • Fly fishing: consists of catching a fish with a lure, called a “fishing fly” representing an insect or a larva. There are 3 types of fly fishing: nymph fishing, drowned fishing and dry fishing.
  • Fishing with toc: this technique requires natural baits collected on the fishing grounds according to the seasons. Examples: earthworms, moths, leeches, grasshoppers…

According to the Fédération pêche 64 in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, it is prohibited:

  • Establish devices, perform manoeuvres, beat the surface of the water in order to gather fish.
  • To fish by hand or under the ice by disturbing the water or digging under the roots.
  • Fishing with gear and nets in flooded areas.
  • Use trolling lines.

Consult the regulations in force on fishing in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques.

avis camping beau rivage

A campsite as we like them, on a human scale, nicely planted with trees, very well maintained with a very friendly welcome, a nice swimming pool, all in a quiet setting on the banks of a river, the Gave.
A stone’s throw from the historic centre of Navarrenx and its pretty shops.
We will return with pleasure.
Thank you again for everything.
