Fishing territory

Made up of almost 400 km of banks classified as salmonids, and with a wide variety course, the Basque Nives will delight fishermen whatever their level or their physical capacities. The mild climate and regular rainfall allow to practice trout or salmon fishing from March to September without big risk of snowmelt or severe drought.
