Visiting coarse anglers staying at Stang Korvenn are simply spoiled for places to drop a hook and line. Just behind the gate is the famous river Aulne with its rich salmon-fishing history. It makes up 65 km of the Nantes to Brest canal system which in its entirety is some 316 km long.

Big Fish

The river Aulne is a hybrid waterway, part natural river, as it has retained its natural meanders, and part canal with many locks (ecluses) dotted along its length. In past years visiting coarse anglers have simply stationed themselves behind the house where they have caught all manner of freshwater species, and for many, a personal best or two!
For those fishermen who want to venture a bit further afield, there are many other fishing locations such as the St Michel Reservoir and other spots where anglers can enjoy many blissful hours communing with nature and usually catching some of it too!

We have commissioned local fishing expert (and previous owner of our house) Sam Davis to write an informative guidebook to fishing at Stang Korvenn and in the local area. It is packed with everything you need to know including geography of the river, information on the different sorts of fishing licenses (which we can arrange for you), and local tackle shops etc.

This will be exclusively available to any of our guests who wish to fish locally.


We have some fishing equipment for visiting anglers to borrow (keep nets, landing nets, adult and child fishing chairs) in case you have forgotten anything, and there is a bait fridge, all included free of charge. There is also a large covered area in the garden where you can sort out your equipment after a long day's fishing, or carry out essential preparation.

"I had spent a week here 3 years ago and enjoyed a superb week's fishing whilst taking day trips to the Brittany coast with the family. This holiday was with a friend and my father to show them how good the fishing is (better than Ireland in my opinion - 2lb Roach and 8lb Bream in shoals!!!) and once again the river did not disappoint. Bryan has done a great job with the gite and gardens, if you're after a quiet relaxing break then this place is perfect and if you fish then bring the rods."
