The day is just beginning to dawn, and the fishermen are coming to take their places along the river bank. In Gaillac and the surrounding area, it is good to fish in the first gentle rays of the sun. This is the natural version of a "calm, luxury and indulgent" experience.
Lakes and rivers, a paradise for fishermen
The Tarn, a powerful river, renowned among fishermen, offers a great richness of fish life and two fishing courses. To the west of Gaillac, several sites are available for both beginner and experienced fishermen.
