Haute-Saône is the anglers paradise with 3450 km of fishing courses in 1st and 2nd category and about 400ha of ponds and lakes. Haute-Saône offers a fishery reciprocity with 87 other departments (West Region fishery agreement). The river is rich in many varieties of fishes. From Melisey to Villersexel, you will fish many trouts and graylings. But downstream, you will find predatory fishes. For Pêche Mouche magazine (a fishing magazine), the Ognon river is one of the 100 best rivers in France.
There are 2 AAPPMA (fishing societies) on the Pays de Villersexel :
