A lake made for pioneering: dammed lake on the course of the Truyère.
- Dammed lake on the course of the Truyère.
- Gorges lake situated on the foothills of the Aubrac plateau
- Surface area 1000 ha (2500 acres)
- Max depth 90 m (300 feet)
- A long thin lake with a few small branches notably on its upstream third
- Upstream third quite open and easy to medium access according to the fishing sites
- The 2/3 downstream are far steeper and difficult to access from the banks making the use of a boat necessary
- slight daily change in water level and water level often low the end of the season
- Wild lake with very few tourists
- Lake used for night fishing all year round across its whole surface
- Very little carp activity making fishing difficult but as the lake is under exploited some surprises can be had
- Size of the carp population unknown but according to predator anglers who often fish the lake, there are some very large fish hiding in its waters
- It seems that the best time to fish is in the spring when the fish migrate towards the cooler zones mainly situated upstream
- Warning, temporary reserve zone in spring where all fishing is forbidden, day and night
