Carp & Catfish Fishing | River Ebro | Spain  

Tour code: SPA001  

This is Catfish fishing at its best, for the experienced or for those, who have never even caught a Catfish – this trip is designed for you. An amazing one out of five Catfish are over the magical TON-100lb. The river we fish starts at the large dam just above Mequinenza, which is the mecca of the Catfish world.

The river Ebro is world famous for its Catfish fishing, but one little known fact is in the upper reaches the Common Carp fishing is truly second to none. Over the years we have been fishing this area concentrating on the Catfish with live baits. All the time while fishing we have seen hundreds of Carp rolling, crashing and feeding right in the margins.

Transfixed on the cat fishing it was always something we planned to do at a later date. It was only when we started to fish with pellets (which is still new to the upper reaches of the Ebro) that we started to catch Common Carp after Common Carp. These average over 22lb and in all probability is the first time they have ever been caught. We provide you with all the correct equipment to target these huge hard fighting Catfish of the river Ebro, which is all included in the package.

This trip is truly designed for the more adventurous angler. The bank fishing for Carp and Cats in this area is still very much virginal and well worth the trip. It’s also a great place to experiment with baiting and fishing techniques. Our trips are based in the town of Caspe which over looks the dammed part of the river Ebro. This is known by several names “The Top Lake”, “Lake Caspe”, Embalsa de Mequinenza” or “Mar de Aragon”

Ebro Fishing Apartment

The Ebro fishing apartments are perfectly set up for the angler as well as an ideal place to rest and refresh after a hard days fishing on the Ebro. With the rooms being located above the owners bar/restaurant, you will not have to walk far for your meals and is the best place in town to share your fishing stories.

The apartments comprise of two two – bedded rooms, two three – bedded rooms and a small one- bedded room. There is a small kitchen with fridge, microwave and sink for you to use to make teas and coffees. Each of the apartments are basic, but is an ideal place to relax after a long hard day on the river.

The bar/restaurant is open every day and is where you will be eating your meals. They have a wide selection for the evening meals and if you request something different, they will try very hard to accommodate you. There is also a good selection of alcohol on offer.
