Wild Fishing Portugal

Explore Portugal’s lakes and rivers! Captain Russel will take you on a fishing trip in Corte Cobres, which is only 2 hours away from the capital Lisbon. At the moment, his trips are available early spring, from March, till the second week of May. Spend a relaxing day, far from the big city’s hustle and bustle.

This is more than just a fishing trip, as you’ll get to experience the Alentejo region in many different ways. Enjoy the delicious food and wine this area is known for. You can stay longer, since the captain can arrange the accommodation as well.

Capt. Russel specializes in fly fishing and spinning. You’ll mainly target Carp, Barbel, Shad, Black Bass, Zander, and Mullet. You don’t need to be an avid angler to enjoy this trip, so come even if you’ve never fished before. It’s about the experience, not how much fish you get in your cooler. In certain areas, you can also catch fish at night.

You’ll be fishing on a 10’ airboat. Since the boat isn’t very spacious, the capacity is limited to only 2 guests. This simple boat provides a safe and stable ride, and also features a 70 HP engine, a fish finder, and a cooler for your catch.

Your fishing equipment and licenses are fully covered. Capt. Russel also cleans your catch free of charge. Just bring some snacks and drinks for the boat.

There’s nothing better than ending a day eating the fish you’ve caught and enjoying a glass of vinho verde. Join Wild Fishing Portugal!

I have fished from the age of 4 and this has always been a huge part of my life. 5 years ago, I started to fish in Portugal and still love every second of it. My preferred type of fishing is fly fishing for all fish and coarse fishing for Barbel. I even like catching mini species, such as pumpkin seeds.
