Night fishing no longer allowed at St. Cassien

Bad news for all carp fishing fans in France, since nightfishing is no longer allowed at the renown St. Cassien Lake in southern France.

Anglers leaving their garbage and using the environment as a public toilet are part of the problems.

On May 5th the local authorities have decided to disallow all night fishing at Lac de Saint Cassien starting this summer.

After years of complaints of angry locals, the night fishing ban is finally put into place. Besides leaving their mess at the spot and using the fishing spots as public toilets, fishermen also ignored the ban on public fires during the hot summer season, increasing the risk of forest fires.

Another big problem was the fact that foreign touroperators occupied the best spots for weeks on end for their clients. Of course this is absurd for a public water and this situation caused the authorities to ban night fishing at Cassien.

Also it seems that prostitutes are showing up at the Lake since this summer. French daily Var Matin reports that several ladies are offering their services right next to the Cassien Lake. The local mayor now is trying to ban the prostitution between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

SACS: "Seems not only SA has its problems."
