River Vienne Tel:  
Haute Vienne   

The Vienne Occitan Vinhana is 1 of the most important rivers in south western France. It is a significant left tributary of the lower Loire. It supports numerous hydro electric dams & it is the main river of the Limousin region & also of the eastern part of the Poitou Charentes region. 2 French departments are named after the Vienne, Haute Vienne in the Limousin region & Vienne in the Poitou Charentes region. The Vienne rises as a spring in the department of Correze at the foot of Mont Audouze, on the Plateau de Millevaches Nr Peyrelevade. It then flows roughly west to the city of Limoges where it once played a major role in the famous Limoges porcelain industry. A little way after Limoges it takes a turn to the north. En route to its confluence with the Loire, the Vienne is joined by the rivers Creuse & Clain. Finally, after a journey of 372km it reaches the Loire at Candes Saint Martin in the department of Indre et Loire. Carp. Cat Fish, Tench, Chub, Roach, Perch, Zander & Pike.
