River Tardoire


As you'll notice from our new address, we are not far from the River Tardoire. This pretty little brook starts about 10 kilometres from Champagnac-La-Riviere outside Chalus. It continues to wind its way through the Haute -Vienne/Charente/Dordogne before vanishing again underground in the Dordogne.

There are various bridges that cross the river throughout the region allowing the angler access to the water.

We have discovered some rather "fishy" stretches 12 mins away from us, just into the Dordogne near Montbron. Local clubs stock the river early season with trout from Chalus downstream.

As this is a category 1 water, it is only open to anglers between the second Saturday in March and 15th September. As can be seen by the photos, the river can be difficult to access with a fly rod, however, we do have a 6 ft AFTM 2 rod to use if you wish.
We continue to discover this river and others locally, and will of course update the site as we find good swims.
