River La Mayenne is a stunning river with some great fishing that cuts through the middle of the department and linking Mayenne to Laval it is a cat 2 lake where you can use up to 4 rods and there are lots of areas for night fishing for Carp in most towns on the route of the river. As with most French waters there is a good head of most types of fish with some very large carp and Pike to be had. If you like river fishing then La Mayenne is worth a trip.
Please note – When fishing any Public waters in France please have respect for the location and clear up any mess that you have made and do not damage banks / vegetation and no open fires, Catch and release all fish except Trout and Salmon that rules let you take and when fishing for Carp use appropriate fishing tackle with large landing net and unhooking mat. Fish stealing is a big problem from Public waters if you see anybody removing large fish like Carp please take note of the vehicle registration and report to authorities.
