The Sainte Marguerite lakes

Sainte Marguerite Lakes - © FSPPMA

Rich in fario trout, the two Ste-Marguerite lakes will offer you some great fishing: the most beautiful specimens will be in the first lake, the Round one. However, the fishing will be more interesting on the second lake, the Long.


Originally composed of 3 lakes, the Sainte Marguerite lakes are now only two because the Grande Montagne lake is drying up. The 2h approach hike from the Lavoir parking, passing by the Mounioz chalets (+20 min by staying on the GR5), is rather easy despite
two slightly steeper passages.
The Rond, the first one at the arrival, is the biggest and the deepest of the two, even with the tidal range due to the withdrawals from the Mont Thabor refuge. The most beautiful specimens will be in this lake. However, the most interesting
for fishing will be the Long Lake.
On these two bodies of water, fly fishing can be very fruitful thanks to a fairly regular activity on the surface.
