Location: Baerenthal and Moutherhouse -France

Want to go fishing but dot have a fishing license? Not a problem!! France does not require a Fishing license. Day permits are available on site for each location. The cost per location is 6 euro.

We will fish on a lake in the town Baerenthal, in the picturesque Alsace region of Northern France. The town is located the heart of the Northern Vosges Nature Park, an area of woodland, wetland, farmland and historical sites that is a designated biosphere reserve by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  Baerenthal is surrounded by water so it’s not surprising that the village has served as a meeting place for anglers since the 1400s.

The lake is stocked with pike, walleye, cat fish, trout and other local species. The following fish are in the nearby Moutherhouse river: trout, walleye, pike, carp, red fins, European catfish, grayling and other local species. These are native fish, not just a stock pond - join Baumholder Outdoor recreation for a REAL fishing trip!
