Camping Pyrénées Passion in Aren in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64) for fishing enthusiasts!

Camping Pyrénées Passion is an ideal camping for fishing enthusiasts, on the banks of the Gave d'Oloron, in the heart of Béarn and at the foot of the Pyrenees (64).

 

Our camping is a partner of the AAPPMA of the Gave d'Oloron and as such, sells fishing permits, associated options and takes care of your salmon catch declarations and distributes migratory assortments.

The Gave d'Oloron, with its torrential and crystal clear waters, is classified in the first category. This beautiful river is internationally renowned for the presence of migratory fish such as the Atlantic salmon, the sea trout, the lamprey and the large shad, as well as the fario trout, which can reach sizes of 35 to 45 cm and sometimes more, which will delight the sport fishing enthusiasts

 

Fishing traditionally opens on the 2nd Saturday in March. Fly fishing remains the most traditional. It will be the level, colour and temperature of the water that will determine the choice of fly and the type of line.

 

The Gave is a powerful river, wading is often necessary and it is better to be accompanied by someone who knows the river. Many fishing guides are available to help you discover the river.

All along the Gave d'Oloron you will find several places with quiet areas called pools, the campsite is located 100m from one of the most famous, Le Bac d'Aren.

The Gave d'Oloron attracts many fly fishing enthusiasts from all over the world each year and, to hear them tell it, ranks as one of the most beautiful rivers in the world.
