Fishing at the lake of Tolerme

Welcome to the heart of the Ségala region, surrounded by unspoilt nature. At an altitude of over 500 meters, Lac du Tolerme is the largest lake in the département. With a surface area of 38 ha, it’s the ideal lake for fishing! Whether you’re fishing by the lake, in a boat or on a float-tube, this attractive lake offers a wealth of possibilities for both fishing and outdoor pursuits. Grab your rods!

The little fishes

in water

Classified as 2nd category, the Tolerme is rich in large roach, averaging 200 grams. These fish are biters and return at rod distance, where it’s possible to make some fine stuffing. The waters are also rich in bream and carp. English and feeder are two techniques that work very well on this site for stalking these big fish, which tend to stay in the middle of the lake. Other fish such as trout, gudgeon and tench also populate the lake. For trout, all types of fishing are permitted: fly-fishing, spoon-fishing, etc…

Two gîtes


It’s here, on the edge of the lake, that the “Les Pieds dans l’eau” and “Les Années 30” gîtes welcome you for a stay as close to nature as possible. Fishing equipment, fishing rods for the kids, float boats – here, everything has been thought of to ensure you have an excellent time. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the Ségala region, and admire its biodiversity, wildlife and forests. Whatever the season, Lac du Tolerme will be a paradise for your fishing trips!

Did you know?

The Tolerme rises at around 650 metres above sea level in the commune of Labastide-du-Haut-Mont. Impounded by a dam since 1991, it forms the Lac du Tolerme. It then flows into the Bave, which in turn flows into the Dordogne.
