Saint Genès Champespe, France
Char, Salmon, Brook trout, Trout, Carp, Other fish

The Lac de La Landie strectches out on the plateau d'Artense, at some 1036 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Natural Parc of Haute Auvergne Volcanoes. This lake was created thousands of years ago by the successive action of volcanoes and glaciers. Its waters hold a lake village as well as pottery dating back to the Iron Age...Round the lake you will find hardwood forest, secret peat bogs sheltering some seventy rare species of plants, reed beds swarming with life and meadows in bloom where grazing cows contribute to the making of the famous St Nectaire cheese, in a chorus of cowbells. North of this exceptionnal site, the Massif Central reaches its highest point of 1 886 m at the Puy de Sancy that reflects himself in the lake waters, while the Cantal mountains stand out on the southern horizon. The lake strechtes on about 75 acres, and is 20 m depth in its center foss, with a good water temperature for salmonid during all the year.
The Lake of the Landie shelters a native population of lake trouts (biggest ever caught 9 kg) and various fish (carp, roaches, minnows), complemented since 1991 with other salmonid fishes : rainbows (jumper, steelhead...), landlocked salmon, crossing beetween chars and brook trouts ...

The average weight of trout is above 3 pounds, but each years many fishes from 6 to 16 pounds are caught for the pleasure of fishermen ! The lake is private and only open for fly-fishing, from april to november.

    The lake is beautifull and well stocked in trouts of various species and size, all of quality. The accomodations are simple but clean,confortable,and well adapted. The boats and the material are well maintained. All this provides excellent fly fishing.
