Fishing in Troyes!

Visitors will undoubtedly be struck by the sight of fishermen sitting on a folding chair, in the shade of a parasol when the sun’s beating down, a fishing rod in hand, tempting the gudgeon in the streets of Troyes – right in the heart of town!
The explanation is simple: the town of Troyes is built in a network of water, a web of arms of the Seine and rivers, streams and rivulets, canals and branches, dykes and spillways, outlets and and culverts.
The river and its offshoots crisscross the urban area of Troyes for about 13 kilometres. So fish are perfectly at home, not just the gudgeon mentioned above, but pike, perch, pikeperch, carp and other members of the Cyprinidae family.
The Bassin de la Prefecture, the name of the vast lake situated upstream from the town centre, is the preferred meeting place for anglers who resemble seaman when the spray is swept by the wind to whip their faces.
