Quality of our rivers

qualite riviereThe year 2016 will remain in our memories as a difficult year. After incessant spring floods and the episode of fish mortality in The river : la Bienne, the summer was marked by a significant low water throughout the hydrological network of our department.

Fishing in the 1st category, at the request of a number of presidents of local fishing associations supported by our Federation was closed early September.

The levels of some rivers and health status observed salmonid not allowing the practice of recreational fishing. Traditional autumn fishery for metering and monitoring fish had to be canceled in places. 2nd category rivers, lakes and dams on them, rather resilient to the heat wave and the presence of fishermen remained important. 

The end of the year 2016, is an opportunity of great reflection, carried out by different departments of the state, the future and positions to be taken to stop the deterioration of our rivers of 1st category.

The departmental Fishing Federation of the Jura and in particular its technical service is present in every meeting. 
We will be present whenever an expertise or a decision will be valid.


The quality of our rivers, is and will remain the top priority for us. You will find on our site, ongoing studies and projects.
We hope that the water levels in December will allow the observation of trout spawning grounds or the presence of the parents will be an indication amongst others, in the expertise of our rivers of 1st category.

Do not hesitate to contact us, we will help you organize your fishing trip.
