Fishing at the Gaillands lake

in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

This lake is located at the edge of the Arve river, in the Chamonix valley, at 1017 m of altitude. It hosts a nice population of fario trout, but they can be difficult to lure because of the clarity of the water.

It is also stocked with rainbow trout, which are more easily caught, especially by less experienced fishermen. Finally, it is worth noting the presence of California crayfish in fairly high densities, which can be caught on a scale.
