River Ebro Fishing

The mighty Catfish on the River Ebro attracts many freshwater anglers each year to see if they can catch themselves a true freshwater giant. The fishing is ideal for experienced anglers or those who have never even caught a Catfish because along with the fishing guide who will be with you all the time, you will be fishing areas renowned for their huge catches. Once you have hooked your very first Catfish you will be wanting to return year after year to see if you can smash your PB’s.

An amazing one out of five Catfish is over the magical 100lb, a phenomenal size for any freshwater river system. The River Ebro starts at the large dam just above Mequinenza, the mecca of the Catfish world. Everyone who has ever shown an interest in fishing in Spain would have heard of this area as it is one of the most famous areas on the River Ebro and has featured on many fishing programmes over the years. We have got some great freshwater videos on our Youtube Channel

The river Ebro is world-famous for its Catfish fishing, but one little known fact is that Common Carp fishing is genuinely second to none in the upper reaches. Over the years, we have been fishing this area concentrating on the Catfish with pellets. While fishing, we have seen hundreds of Carp rolling, crashing and feeding right in the margins. This destination is fully guided whilst on the banks, ensuring you get the most out of your Catfish fishing holiday.

Where is the River Ebro

You will be fishing the River Ebro in Spain; this area of the Ebro near the town of Caspé is world-renowned for its giant Catfish that live in these stretches and will be taken to the swims by your guide who will know the area exceptionally well. The River Ebro is one of Spains most famous rivers, running a distance of 580 miles. This large river moves massive volumes of water and produces some fantastic fishing. The town of Caspè, located in the province of Zaragoza, in the west of the country, is rich with culture and is famous for the vineyards that surround it, along with beautiful countryside.

Fishing For Catfish

The fishing on the River Ebro is phenomenal; for the freshwater angler, this is one destination that you have to visit. The areas of this river that you will fish in give the anglers the chance to catch some absolute monster fish, with some reaching over 200lb. All the fishing will be from the river bank with rods being placed out either by casting them or taking them out in a boat; the guide will advise the best method on any given day.

Your guide will help you at every step of the way means that your fishing on the Ebro is the best it can be. The Catfish and Carp 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 tackle provided to you is of high quality and designed 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 catching 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.

River Ebro Fishing Guides

The guides on this river Ebro Fishing package are handpicked for their abilities to put people on fish time after time. They have been fishing this river for many years and have many tricks up their sleeves, so if the action slows down, they will always know a trick or two to encourage a bite.

Catfishing guides work hard to make your dreams come true, and these guides are some of the best and don’t stop working. They will pick you up from the restaurant in the morning and take the group down to the river where you will spend your days fishing. If there is anything you would like to know from your guide, make sure you speak with them as if you don’t mention it, they cannot help.

Gary

Never got so messed up with mud and slime, but then again I have never ever had as much fun as that fishing in my life. Unbelievable trip.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

The downside of all those fish is the mud and slime, glad you enjoyed your holiday hope to see you all again soon.

For a start, the flights were on time! Was met by the man himself - Martin. This time of the year it starts getting hot, about 35C+. My guide Alan could not look after me any better, the equipment - first class. Off to a slow start first day, 3 fish - 2 were in the 60's. 2nd day not good all around. 3rd day had 2 at 50 and 65, lost/missed loads. 4th day OMG! 14 cats all weights up to 58lb - my poor arms. 5th day was joined by 2 fishing writers and guide Rory -7 fish OMG, my 4th fish 150lbs, what a fight. All these fish were caught 140 yards out and give you grief all the way, if you are not careful you could be pulled over. On the big one I have never heard such a noise from the poor reel!

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Stephen, now thats a feedback, thanks for all your comments and also for rebooking. I look forward to the same report next time. Regards Mathew.

Steve – 74lb, 45lb, 2lb, 140lb, 58lb, 47lb Catfish

Day 5 – 11/9/09:

As you can see, we had a brilliant time. The guide told us he had never fished this swim before which was clear as that first day we only had a few fish. However, the constant ground baiting reaped huge rewards.

Jackie, who had never fished before, was the first one to catch a catfish over 100lbs and caught the biggest carp, 46lbs, in our group!

She had thought she was going to be bored and had brought books and magazines to pass the time – In fact she never got to read a page as to busy fishing!!!!

The accommodation was basic but soon became home as we got used to it (remember to take towels with you).

At the end of each day we would discuss the days fishing with other anglers in the bar and made a few friends – the food was good too!

We never had time to shop as too shattered from the fun of the day as you were out by 8 a.m. and did not usually return until about 7 p.m.!

We did think afterwards it would have been good to attach a weeks relaxing holiday at the end of this trip!

Please can you rebook us in for next year?

Kind regards Steve and Jackie

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Steve & Jackie thanks for such a detailed report and all your feedback, also a good tip about taking extra towels to wipe off all the fish slime :) I have rebooked you as requested. Kind Regards Peter

Over all a great holidays with great guides who worked really hard to please. One big issue is not everyone wants to go fishing every day and with the jollyfisherman not open during the day there is no way you can go back to your room . Plus there are no locks on any bedroom doors.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Mr Aldred

Thank you for taking the time to both talk to me on the telephone and for completing your feedback form. In relation to number of fishing hours, I think that is a fair comment as after all its your own holiday so if you wish to finish early that should not be any issue. In relation to the bedroom locks, this has come up before, the issue is the owner keeps changing the locks but customers keep losing the keys. This is something that we can talk to the operator about again and see if we can get this resolved.

We were met at the airport on arrival and quickly transfered to the accommodation at the jolly fisherman where we were met by Martin and his team.

The accommodation though basic was adequate and clean.

The food was exceptional and varied and we were asked each day what we wanted for dinner.

The fishing guide Alan and his assistant Graham were totally professional and through their expertise and knowledge helped us to catch plenty of fish with our group catching 83 cats totalling 5,134 lbs with 6 over 100 lbs and several 80l b and 90 lb fish.

I would recommend to anyone contemplating taking a trip go ahead you won't regret it and we will be returning in the near future.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Daz

It was great talking to you on the telephone and I am happy that you all had a great trip. That is an amazing amount of fish 5,134 lb of slime :)

I look forward in dealing with you all again and will look at the same dates for next year.

Had a brilliant time, the jolly fisherman was very good, food was top notch made to feel welcome the second we walked in.

Sleeping area was as described basic but we knew that before we booked, the showers were fine and worked well.

Guides were a good bunch and we had a good laugh with them, as said food was very good freshly cooked when we got back from fishing.

All staff were friendly and helpful we are looking at booking for next year for sure.

Well done and all praise to Martin and his team.

Also praise for the office team for making it so easy for us all thank you all.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Ken Thank you from us all for your kind remarks and great feedback. It sounds like you guys had an amazing time and it was a pleasure in looking after you all.

I look forward in booking you all back for next year, just feel free to contact me directly when you are al ready.

This fishing adventure on the River Ebro in Spain was excellent, where else can you go in Europe and almost have the guarantee of catching a 100 lb fish? Martin and his team where very professional and dedicated to the fishing.

The accommodation is very basic, with no locks on the rooms which was a bit of a worry! Food in the bar was excellent and the bar really was 'open all hours' which is sometimes not so good when you have to be up early to go fishing!!

Would recommend this trip to anyone who dreams of catching a hard fighting freshwater fish.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

David

Thank you for talking the time to send through your review it is much appreciated. In relation to the comments about the locks, yes this does worry a few people but as you have seen there is nothing to worry about. The issue we had was having locks on all the rooms customers would either forget to return the keys or lose them while fishing. As you know once you get in to all the big cats, getting in and out of the water, etc the last thing you are thinking about is a key in your pocket.

We look forward in helping you arrange your next trip as we appreciate your custom.

Where to start....What a week....we were met at the airport by our guides ...Pontus and Tim....(What knowledgeable guys ) Fantastic guides...nothing too much trouble...always willing to assist...cannot fault either guy .The transfer to our accommodation was interesting as Pontus was a really easy guy to warm to, chatting away like we were old friends and advising myself and my two sons of the itinerary for the highly anticipated week ahead. Once at the accommodation we were introduced to the top man Martin...Again it was like meeting an old friend. Martin welcomed us and made us aware that we were staying in the apartments above the Jolly Fisherman . Once we went up to the accommodation it was quite obvious that these rooms are really basic...no locks on the doors but clean and tidy...we soon realised that after the 1st days fishing you do not require anymore in your room apart from the bed to put your head down....There are 2 showers adjacent to the rooms that are both clean and adequate for your needs...plenty of hot water...there were 10 of us sharing the showers and nobody had a cold shower....There is also a kitchen adjacent to the shower rooms where you can make tea ..coffee etc...The bar downstairs is welcoming and where you all eat and talk about the one that got away...or in our case the Monsters we had caught. The food is excellent and plentiful...if you get a chance ask Martin to cook you a steak ...absolutely spot on....The girls who work in the kitchen are wonderful keeping you supplied with plates of calamari, chicken nuggets etc whilst they are preparing dinner...always freshly cooked nice and hot...really nice...
The Fishing.......Out of this world....You are taken to the River around 8.30 in the morning after a full English breakfast and your rods are already made up on the bank all ready for you. Our guides Pontus and Tim were as enthusiastic as we were to get the rods out....These guys work incredibly hard to make sure your trip is an experience of a lifetime...We went on this trip with the expectation of catching a 100lb catfish and a 30lb carp...All three of us achieved our aim with the 1st 100lb cat being caught on the 1st day...Pontus and Tim made this trip a pleasure and have left myself and my 2 sons with some wonderful memories...
I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience the power of these fish...The whole trip was exciting from day 1 as you were always aware that the next fish could break your PB again....Great Trip...my 2sons are already arranging to go again...Many thanks to Martin and his crew for the experience. Lastly......Thanks to Sportquest....They arranged everything for us for this trip...Fishing licences...flights, transfers etc...All we had to do was get to the Airport....Thanks for a great great Time...Roy, colin and Simon.....BRILLIANT......

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Where do i start....... Wow what a great little report and one that will help people greatly. Glad our guys looked after you so well and all your targets were met. The fishing in Spain is simply awesome and like you said people should experience it for them selves

I shall pass this report on to Martin and the guides and once your boys have decided on some dates then do get them to call me

All the very best

Transfers to and from the airport was in two rather beaten up cars, adequate, but not what I was expecting.
We stayed in the "Ideal Hotel" is Caspe. Accommodation was very good, all meals taken in the bar not hotel. so it could be a problem. To be fair Catfish Capers went the extra mile and ferried us about (hotel to bar) all week.
Fishing guides were all great. Could have had more information from Sportquest about the set up in Spain.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Stephen, thanks for your feedback as these are very important for us and future travellers as we try our up most to amend the issues if there are any.

With regards to the cars, I have spoken to Martin the owner today and he has assured me that he is going out today to purchase a new car. I will keep an eye on this to make sure we do not get any more comments.

The hotel we use, we only use when anglers prefer the hotel feel rather than our standard accommodation above Martins bar. As we include a full food package with Catfish Capers then Martins bar is where you would need to eat each day. I did mention this at the time of booking bit I can now see that in future if people want to stay in the hotel we should include information about the set up for eating at Martins bar.

So glad the guides looked after you so much and you guys had a great week. Hopefully we can help out in the near future

All the best

Wow thanks the 3 of us had a great time with lots and lots of fish. it blew us away. One point to note is accommodation is basic, but you told us that so it was expected, however we went for the fishing and it was excellent.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Ian, I am glad you boys loved it, great pictures I see as well, yes the accommodation is basic but with groups of carp and catfish anglers trudging through each week all covered in slime and mud, its hard to provide much else. But you summed it up in a nutshell, its all about catching the fish. Look forward in arranging another trip for you Paul.

Hi Paul.

Safely returned from Caspe yesterday.
Thought you might like some feedback about a few aspects of the trip.

Fishing: Absolutely fantastic, 79 Cats in total and 4 Carp. Also caught Zander, roach and Bleak. Total Cats in weight 5,435 lbs, 10 over 100lb, biggest 160lb. Total Carp 97lb, biggest 34lb. Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!

Our guides Alan and Glen were superb, offering quality advice, assistance and companionship.

Accommodation: We were a bit disappointed with the accommodation as it is very basic. Managed to cope with this because of the superb fishing.

Food: Breakfasts very good, but no variation regarding lunches, cheese and ham baguettes only. Need to have more variation in evening meals, not chips all the time.

General points: There needs to be a welcome brochure that gives you information about the trip, meal times, pick up times etc, some local info regarding bars and banks etc. A 10-15 minute imput on your first evening by your host would be very useful!!!!!!

Details regarding bait costs need to be available prior to fishing, so people can budget for this cost. This can be a shock to anyone who has not been before. You need a lot of bait to catch the fish.

Hope you find these comments from three old farts constructive and hopefully looked at for future users

Once again thanks for you help on everything, the fishing was great and we had a fantastic time

PS. Have all the catch details if you want them and some photos too, we hope to go again soon with more friends.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Felice

Thank you for your feedback as it is very important to us. I have tried to address your points below:

1. Accommodation, we do try to make people aware that it is very basic and fundamentally just for anglers to rest their head after a hard days fishing

2. Food, i have spoken to our operator in relation to the pack lunches and he has informed me that he will now offer a more varied selection. In relation to evening meals there is a list below of what they have on offer and if there isn't something that takes your fancy then please say something at the start of your holiday and they will try to meet your needs

3. In relation to the welcome brochure, they have produced these before but unfortunately some people have either ruined them or taken them home so becomes fairly expensive to keep producing them. The drivers who take the transfers should now give every new customer a briefing during the transfer and our operator has assured me that this will be reinforced.

4. Bait costs, we will make this a very important part of pre-trip information so that future anglers can budget for this

We at Sportquest Holidays always act on any feedback we receive and make a point of contacting our operator's to resolve any issues. I hope that the comments to your feedback are satisfactory and look forward to assisting you and your group on any future bookings

Good that we all had 100lb + Cats. Carp fishing Disappointing. Pellets over priced at 60 Euros a bag. We had a great Guide, Puntas. Felt sorry for other customers who had novice guides. Cheap Beer, 3 euros. Had to wait too long for baggage reclaim at Stanstead, 2 hurs plus as 2 of our partys bags eventually found on a different collection point from our flight!! Thanks for a great Holiday

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Bill, thanks for your feedback form.

That sounds like a great trip that everyone managed Cats over the magical 100LB mark and dont they hang on....

They have a bit of a captive audience regarding the pellets, this isnt something we have control over. Puntas is very good and someone we get asked for. Shame about the bags at the airport, thats the last thing you need after your flight but glad it all got sorted out in the end.

All the best

Had a great time fishing was amazing, accommodation is very basic but for just anglers returning each day all slimy and smelly it was just fine.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Morning,

I returned from my Ebro trip and what can I say it was simply out of this world so good I would of happily stayed forever. The flights were good and the airport transfer was brilliant. We meet George at the airport and it was just like old friends telling us all about the Ebro and sharing stories etc. The Jolly Fisherman is all that a fisherman wants good food cooked by Mary and good local beer the accommodation was basic but fine as after a long day fishing you don't want anything else apart from food and sleep.
I went there with hoping to get 100lb Cat and a 30lb Carp and my expectations were blown out of the water, Pontus our guide was superb and was so friendly welcoming and again like old friends on the bank and he is also a very good guide. I had a Ton Cat every day I broke my pb on the second day with 136lb cat and that was more than good enough but Pontus was convinced I get something bigger and I did just that on the Wednesday had a 165lb and what I Cat that was, in total to myself I had 19 cats and 6 Carp and my biggest Carp was 47lb 8oz. I left the Ebro with memories that will last me a lifetime and will find that hard to beat. I also left with new friends who are wanting to do it again but are open to ideas of what sort of trip.
I could write for ages but to sum it up the Ebro trip was fantastic and it left me wanting more, the fishing was great, Pontus was brilliant can put into words what this man can do. The food and beer was great and so were my fishing partners.
Not to forget Sportquest who arranged everything faultlessly and kept me informed at all stages and will be definitely be booking again just need to find my next destination with the help of the sportquest team.
Thank you again you made me memories and fish I will never forget for my Lifetime look forward to my next holiday with you.

Yours Faithfully

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Wow, what a great feedback. Sounds like you had an excellent time out there. I was speaking with Pontus when you were out there and he mentioned you were enjoying yourself. I dont think I really need to say much more apart from thank you for taking the time to write this.
