The Saône is a beautiful river in eastern France (in département: Ain 01), which originates in the Vosges and ends in the Rhône in Lyon. Due to its beautiful green banks, it is very popular with anglers. The river is 480 km long and about 100 to 200 meters wide. On the Saône you can fish for carp and catfish.

My experience fishing at the Saone.
I try to share my experience of fishing at this location as objectively as possible and in short.
I fished 2 nights at this location and actually did nothing special. The rods thrown out and some bolies thrown in and this resulted in those 2 nights in 4 carp.
That gives me the impression that the Saone is full of carp. It is worth mentioning that in the autumn there is a chance of whose is what can make fishing very difficult.
This is the perfect campsite for every angler
If you are reading this piece you are probably looking for a nice campsite in beautiful France. I have been camping at Aux Rives du Soleil for many years and hope for many wonderful moments. We go mainly to fishing. This is the perfect campsite for every angler. Whether family holidays or carp and / or catfish fishing – the possibilities are numerous.
I myself am a very fanatic carp angler and had wonderful sessions. The campsite offers the possibility to fish a canal (a tributary of the Saône) and the Saône itself. The tributary, the Reyzousse, is wonderful for fishing, although at first glance it does not seem like a big deal. The larger fish often come from this tributary. Meetings with more than 100 fish in one week are possible on the main river. The Sluis section of the Saône contains many fish with peaks of up to 50 pounds. Right next to the campsite there is a night fishing area where you can catch carp on the weekends.
There is also the possibility to rent a flat floor with electric motor. In short, are you looking for a nice campsite in the middle of the French Saône Valley?
plenty of Fisch
The Saone is a mighty river .. You have to get to know it first … But that there is fish, is a fact … carp, scales and mirrors and thick catfish that one hears in the evening, with big leaps in the shallow waters at the end of the small river Ressouyze, where by the way is also a lot of fish and I have caught carp weighing up to 12 kg … In general, there are incredibly strong fish, especially the scales are large and horribly strong … and you definitely need a boat, they pull like that a lot of string from the mill and swim right in the direction of all the obstacles (end Ressouyze) with boat, it works great.
