Silure fishing in France

Silure, silurus glanis, are huge carnivorous catfish. They are weighing up to 200lbs. Originally they were found in the depth of the big rivers of central Europe. The Danube in Hungary and Yugoslavia is a typical silure river. They were introduced in western Europe a couple of decades ago. They do quite well in the Rhein, the Rhône, the Loire, but the river la Saône in Burgundy remains the top spot.

We can arrange guided days from a boat in Burgundy on the Saône. Your guide is probably the best specialist in our country. All the tackle is provided.
