Fishing on Lac de Chambly in the Jura

Lake Chambly has a surface area of 35 hectares and is located in the Hérisson valley. It measures one kilometre long and 350 metres wide. With a depth of around 10 metres and careful management (the lake is private and has been protected for a number of years), it’s a refuge of choice for numerous species: common bleak, pike, carp, whitefish, roach, zander, perch, etc.

You’ll find additional information on Lake Chambly in French only at Lac de Chambly on Wikipedia.

The lake is surrounded by overhanging cliffs and bordered with marshland. A pontoon has been installed and a boat is available and included in the gîte hire.
