The Moselle, the most important water course of the Vosges, rises in Bussang at an altitude of 725 m.

It is an ideal place for nymph fishing, a fishing technique that is only permitted in a few rivers in the Vosges. This technique is primarily aimed at catching grayling, but trouts are in no way inferior: they are even more shy and reserved and require a cautious approach.

The French Fishing Association offers its members a 30 km long fishing course on both banks. In autumn, these fishing courses are regularly staffed with young trouts.

All rivers belong to the first category.

A passport photo is compulsory for the issue of any type of fishing licence, whatever the duration of the card.
