Publier: The Fishing Resort

For showcasing angling as an activity, since 2018 the Publier municipality now holds the title of a “Fishing Resort”.

Publier benefits from having a long shoreline with free access to the lake to indulge in recreational fishing. The town is home to amateur fishermen whose headquarters are at the Parc du Miroir.

A fishing area for persons with reduced mobility is in Mottay Park. There is a special parking space at the entrance of the park and adapted automatated sanitation facilities.
