Lac du Der is paradise for anglers, with more than 4,000 hectares available for all kinds of angling including game fishing. The healthy environment gives the water such high quality that the lake is full of fish. Even minnows are resplendent, with a rainbow of bright opalescent colours. Superb ! Their appearance and size reflect remarkable growth in the extraordinary environment.

Anglers catch pike, carp, perch, pike-perch, tench, roach etc. In fact, some of the fish become outstanding trophies for sports angling enthusiasts.
