Randonnée / Walking
Randonnée/Walking is enjoyed throughout the year. Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne's micro-climate keeps the temperatures from being too extreme. A dusting of snow does not happen every year but when it does Beaulieu looks magnifigant! The countryside here is very scenic, with woodlands and small fields, numerous pretty medieval villages, and the Dordogne river to explore, with something new to enjoy around every corner - use the smaller roads whenever possible!
Both the Dordogne river and the Vézère river run through the Correze department, along with a handful of tributaries, and there are also numerous lakes in the department. As a result outdoor activities based on water are very popular, from canoeing and kayaking to a quiet spot of fishing.
Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne lies on the banks of the Dordogne River, home to a variety of fish. From the town of Argentat to Beaulieu the river is at its cleanest.
The fishing seasons vary but to give an idea of the fishing season, the following maybe useful. Fishing is allowed during the season only from half an hour before dawn to half an hour after sunset
The grayling season is from 13th March to 21st November inclusive.
The Pike season is from the 3rd Saturday in April to the last Sunday in January. Pike under 50cms are to be returned to the river.
Salmon fishing is not allowed on the Dordogne.
Sea Trout fishing is not allowed on the Dordogne
From mid May to Mid June, Shad.
The trout season opens on the 2nd Saturday of March and closes on the 3rd Sunday of September. Fish under 25 cms must be returned to the water alive. You have the right to take 6 fish per person per day but fish stocks of the wild fish are unsustainable at this level so a policy of ‘no kill’ is encouraged and appreciated.
The zander season is from the 2nd Saturday in May to the 3rd Saturday in January.
It is a legal requirement to buy a fishing permit or “Carte de Pêche”. Rivers are patrolled by gendarmes and by ‘gaurdians de pêche’ to ensure that anglers have one. “The Carte de Pêche de Vacances” is valid for 15 consecutive days and currently costs in the region of 30 Euro’s, this can be used between 1st June and 30th November.
