Fishing in France on public waters (rivers) or club waters (there are 4030 Associations Agréées de Pêche et de Protection du Milieu Aquatique (AAPPMA) means you will you will need a fishing licence. If you are going to be fishing on the move in North/West/Central France it may well be worth buying a permit for the grouping which covers 29 Departments. This can be bought online or in tackle shops. Otherwise the best advice is to talk to a local tackle shop. Fishing licence rules on lakes and ponds is even more complex. The owner of the lake does not necessarily own the fishing rights. Take local advice. Fishing seasons are equally complex. Trout fishing starts on 13th May while Pike opens 13th March. Again take local advice.
