    Yes I have a dabble on the Barragems in Portugal.
    Most fight like he'll as most never been caught before slim not fat lumps fed on boileys.

    I'm probably the wrong person to ask. I love fishing in France but spend most of my time trying to avoid catching carp! I believe that carp are the only fish you are allowed to fish for at night over there?

    Full timer here, have been carp fishing since I could walk, but recently, (last 2 years), I have got heavily into predator fishing with lures / spinners in freshwater and saltwater, much more fun and active than carp fishing, but I still love the carp.

    Welcome! We stayed at an aire beside the Yonne last year and there were a few carp anglers there. It may be a river but it is more like a wide canal. It is slightly north of Gurgy and listed on the Campercontact website or in their app as #2067.

    The fishing in France i find brilliant ,Lots of places to fish .Personally i like the river Aisne which i think you can catch about everything .most big fish never caught before .There is big fish to be had along its length .But them that fancy fishing in France make sure you get your Carte De PECHE (Licence). If they catch you fishing without a licence they confiscate your gear for a couple of weeks ,which means most go home without getting there gear back ,plus a fine .This year my Annual licence was 96 euros , I think the weekly one is about 36 Euros.Enjoy lol

    Yes , I have the carte de peche as I've fished in france for 20 yrs +n , but now with my newly acquired camper i want to fish more rivers and public waters where i can park right next to the water and have alittle luxury instead of a small bivvy
