Pikes, zanders abound in the lake of Bort-les-Orgues listed in the 2nd category. These fish are also plentiful in the lake called Pont d’Arpiat, 2 km away from the campsite. This fishing spot is well known among fishers of Puy-de-Dôme and Corrèze; it is, in fact, where the Burande and the Dordogne join. If you are fishing with a boat instead, there is a boat launch at the Pont d’Arpiat Lake.
