How to do it ?

First of all, you need a fishing licence. Indeed, it is compulsory to be able to fish in fresh water. Don't worry, at the tourist office we sell them, and if we are closed, other establishments offer this service.
What do we fish and where ?
For beginners, the whitebait is the ideal way to start the activity. The small Doubs is full of them, you can find bleak, gudgeon, roach... which can be caught without limitation and cooked afterwards.
The small Doubs
This branch of the Doubs river, located in the centre of Verdun-sur-le-Doubs, is the ideal spot to fish for these types of fish. Several pontoons and launches allow you to settle down quietly, waiting for a catch.
The Dheune is a small winding river with easily accessible banks. About ten metres wide and 1 to 2 metres deep, it is home to a large number of roach, bleak and chub. We advise you to set up under the bridge where the Dheune flows into the Saône, at Allerey-sur-Saône.
This river is rich in carp, pike-perch and catfish and they share the waters with smaller fish such as gudgeon and bleak, making all fishers happy. To fish for these small fish, set up at the boat launches next to the Saunières bridge.
Of course, the Saône offers many possibilities for anglers. For beginners, the port of Allériot and the banks of the Saône between this commune and Bey offer an ideal setting for setting up your equipment and casting your rod.
