Vaumigny was recently chosen for a documentary on big sturgeon fishing…
The lake was one of the forerunners in France for introducing several species of big sturgeon into their closed waters so it’s anglers can enjoy the exhilarating sport. There are 25 to 30 sturgeon to over 100lb with the biggest specimen estimated at 140lb. These record size fish are fragile and everything is done to protect them so there are strict rules on handling them.
The article is due out in November and we’ll keep you posted, but for now here’s a couple of pictures from the filming process and Vaumigny’s residents.
