Worlds Best Catfishing River

Have you ever dreamt of doing battle with one of the most challenging fighting freshwater fish on the planet? Well, now is your chance, as we are offering family fishing holidays on river ebro Catfishing at its best. Imagine standing on the side of a substantial fast running river holding on to a very angry Catfish, as it tries to get back to its hole. As you can imagine, it is an experience not to miss.

The Catfish in the River Ebro grow to enormous sizes, and the area we fish hold beasts over the magic 200lb mark along with many 100lb Catfish. With multiple catches daily, this truly is the home to some of the world’s finest freshwater fishing. Our guides will take great care of you whilst family fishing holidays on river Ebro on this impressive river, making your day as enjoyable as possible.

They are willing to do everything or as little as you wish and will make your experience as full-on as they can. The guides have been fishing this area for many years now, and they know some pretty good places where the Catfish like to call ‘Home’ and then it’s down to you. Do you think you can handle such a fish? Well, there is only one way of finding out.

Where is this holiday Based

When targeting the giant Wels catfish that inhabit the world-famous River Ebro, you will be fishing in some of Spains most renowned river system. The Ebro is well known for its monster fish that live in it with giant Catfish and big Carp also swim these waters. The pretty little town of Caspe is where you will be based and located in the province of Zaragoza in the west of the country. This area is rich with culture and is famous for its vineyards and beautiful countryside. On our Youtube Channel, you can find many more freshwater fishing holidays.

How to catch Catfish & Carp

The fishing on the River Ebro is phenomenal; for the freshwater angler, this is one destination that you have got to fish. The areas of this river that we fish in give the anglers the chance to catch some absolute monster fish, reaching over 200lb.

All your fishing will be done from the river bank with your guide taking out your rig and bait to known areas that hold giant fish. Your guide will help you every step of the way, which in turn will mean that your fishing experience on the Ebro will be the best it can be.

The family fishing holidays on river Ebro that you will be fishing for are predominantly bottom-feeding fish, so you will be ledgering baits on the bottom using a specifically designed tackle for this type of fishing. The kit provided for you to use is high-quality as these Cats will find any weak links, so you must be fishing with the best to tame these monster that you will find here.

With Catfish to over 200lb in this river and Carp to over 40lb, the chance of a monster here is highly achievable, and when the bite alarms scream off, you never know what could be on the end of the line. If you want to target Carp, then the guides have lighter setups, and all you have to do is fish the margins.

Ebro Catfishing Guides

The fishing guides on this fantastic Catfishing holiday have been fishing around here for many years and are used to all angling abilities. Paul Booth and his team will take care of you and ensure you are fishing for the best possible spots. Having the best guides ensures that you have the highest chance of catching that fish you have travelled here to target meaning, these guides will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, ensuring your holiday goes as smooth as possible.

Accommodation

The Ebro is renowned as one of the world’s best destinations for catching the infamous Wels Catfish. These jumbo Catfish reach sizes well over 200lb in weight and offers anglers from the UK the chance to see substantial freshwater fish from taking just a short-haul flight to Spain. This holiday is also fully guided, so from the start, to finish you will be in the best possible hands to battle these freshwater leviathans.

Stephen

Thank you Sportquest and Paul Booth over in Spain for making this a dream come true for my father. He has always wanted to catch a freshwater fish over 100lb and he was not let down. The biggest for him for the week was 187LB which I believe you have now got pictures of.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Steve and Tony, glad Tony loved it and managed his dream fish. It really is the best place in the world for a giant Catfish. Paul Booth is an excellent host and takes care of all anglers. Peter says thanks for the pictures they will appear on our website very soon and congratulations on such an amazing Catfish.

Are you guys still interested in a Thailand trip? I will try and get hold of you next week all the best Paul

The fishing was very hard due to high temps but luckily by the end of the week the weather started to cool down and the fishing just got better and better. I will send you a couple of pictures when I have time

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Terry July is renowned for high temperatures but normally the Catfish feed first light and last light but guess they just did want to feed at all. Good to hear it picked up for you guys and would really appreciate some pics when you have time.

All our best

Dean

Hi Paul thanks for all your help with this trip. We have been to Spain before and tried to do it ourselves and this time it felt alot more organised. The host, Paul Booth, helped us rig up every day and put us on fish time after time. My Cat was the biggest of the week at 179LB and Tony said he would try and send some pictures to you as soon as he can.

The accommodation made a lovely change to what else is on offer in Spain and was surprised with Caspe, lots to do in the evenings.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Dean it was my pleasure to help you guys again and thanks for your feedback form. I shall pass on your comments to the host. Pictures would be great and if ok with you guys I will write a nice blog. Glad you liked the hotel and yes it makes a nice change

Barry

Hi Sportquest holidays after a little disaster with our flights turning up in Spain late and missing our transfer we soon had things sorted and found ourselves at the hotel you had booked for us. It was more than we were expecting and the staff were very helpful even though it was nearly midnight when we turned up. Paul called us first thing in the morning to make sure we had arrived and arranged what time we wanted to go fishing. The weather was a little cooler than normal which Paul said was making the Cats feed more so every one was very excited about going fishing.

To cut a long story short we all had massive Catfish and a few good Carp so in general the holiday was a great success. Thanks Mel for organising a new transfer for us and tell Peter we will send him some pictures

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Barry what a shame your holiday started in that way but unfortunately we can not control flights but at least things were sorted and you managed to arrive the same day (just)

We did hear that the Catfish were feeding well and thought you guys would have a good trip. Thank you for taking the time to fill out your feedback form and will tell Peter to look out for your pictures.

Hopefully we will catch up soon

Gary

Wow it was hot high 30's every day. the fishing was a little slow we had cats from 50LB to 110LB. Paul was a great guide and kept us entertained on the slow days

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Gary, wow it sounded hot. Like us the cats do not feel like doing much when its that hot. Still by the sounds of it you caught a few fish and can not wait to see the pictures of Wayne swimming in that stream you were talking about..... We will try and get you out of the hotter months next year.

Diane

When my husband asked me to organise a fishing holiday to Spain I really did not know what to expect. We have been on the odd days fishing when on holiday before but never a full organised fishing holiday. It all went very well and Paul was a great host making sure not only my husband was being looked after but also myself as I did not tend to fish very much. I tried reeling in one of Johns catfish but had to give up after 10 minutes as I thought it may well pull me in.

A massive thank you to Mel at Sportquest for suggesting Catfishing in Spain.

All our very best, Diane and John

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Diane, it was a real pleasure to talk through this holiday with you and glad you both enjoyed it and managed to have a go yourself. Yes Paul the host is very good he always gets a glowing report. I shall email him your very kind words and hopefully you will choose to use Sportquest in the future

All my best, Mel
