Come and fish, it’s allowed!
From Etang Sauvage to Etang Bavard, through the Birds Peninsula, 12 ponds are dedicated to fishing. Angling, fly-fishing, pole fishing, feeder fishing, stalk fishing… there is something for all fishing fans. On the menu: pike, zander, black bass, perch, white fish … for those wishing to proudly bring their catch home, and carps which according to regulations in force must be released.
With drained, cleaned, ventilated ponds which are free from unwanted and invasive species, which have been redesigned, developed and protected from infiltration of agricultural products by installing buffer areas, Beaune Côte & Sud and Lyonnaise des Eaux offer users optimum fishing conditions, comfort and safety.
Fishing is authorised providing you hold a fishing pass (carte de pêche), you can purchase this pass on the website of the local fishing and river protection association (Fédération pour la Pêche et la Protection des Milieux Aquatiques de Côte d’Or): www.fedepeche21.com
From a fishing point of view, the Fédération de Côte-d’Or pour la Pêche et la Protection du Milieu Aquatique (fishing and river protection federation) manages the various fishing spots, each having a precise theme related to the fishing mode or specific fish species, through its local AAPPMA (fishing and river protection association) “La Truite Beaunoise”.
Fishing spots have been created for people with reduced mobility so that this leisure activity can be accessible to everyone.
Warning: The use of bait boats is strictly forbidden throughout the site.
To optimise the management and development of this site, Beaune Côte & Sud has developed a management plan for the period running from 2013 until 2020 and has entrusted its implementation to Lyonnaise des Eaux by public service delegation.
Regulations are implemented by the Fédération pour la Pêche et la Protection des Milieux Aquatiques de Côte-d’Or (fishing and river protection federation). To fish at Etangs d’Or, fishermen and women must comply with second category fishing regulations. They must hold a fishing pass (carte de pêche federal) entitling the holder to fish in several French departements.
Fishing management is devolved to the local PPMA (fishing and river protection association) “La Truite Beaunoise”, responsible for the supervision of the fishing site. Accredited agents ensure the regulation is respected and can ask to see your fishing pass.

Aimed at following the evolution of the species natural reproduction in different water bodies, the studies will last for a period of 4 years. 11 ponds out of 18 will be explored through electrical fishing and net fishing for larger ponds. Indeed, electric fishing gives a very representative sample of fish species in shallow areas (less than 1.5 meters). They must be supplemented by net fishing which is certainly more selective but is performed in deeper areas (over 1.5 meters). For the monitoring campaign carried out in 2014, ponds G1, G2, G3, G5 and G6 will be studied.
