3 Fishing Charters
Fishing in Ebro Delta
Ebro Delta fishing is among the best sportfishing on offer in Europe. As the Iberian Peninsula’s second-longest river flows to the Mediterranean, plenty of nutrients, food, and exciting fish gather, giving you an unprecedented opportunity to target a range of exciting fish. From upstream to the open sea, there’s no end to what you can catch.
What can I catch in the Ebro Delta?
Depending on where you go, there’s always something biting in the Ebro Delta. Inland and upstream, some freshwater favorites such as Zander and Crappie rub shoulders with some of Europe’s biggest Catfish. Go after these beauties from land or on a charter, and you’ll be in for a freshwater fishing frenzy.
Nearer the mouth of the river, where the delta forms, plenty of nearshore beauties like to take advantage of the productive feeding grounds. Delicious fish, such as Seabass and Seabream give you the chance to fill the boat, while Bluefish and Leerfish will keep you on your toes.
Finally, an Ebro Delta fishing experience wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Mediterranean. Test your big game fishing skills as you try to land some of the ocean’s most prized, tasty creatures, such as Bluefin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Dentex, and many more.
When to Go
With such a range of fish on offer, it’s also important to make sure you go at the right time to catch your target species. While fishing is possible throughout the year, some creatures go into hiding while others thrive.
Overall, the best season to come fishing in the Ebro Delta is summer. From May through September, the big game creatures gather offshore, while there’s plenty of action inshore and up the river as the fish reach their prime. If you are looking to come out of season, then Catfish, Bluefish, and Seabass can be found, but you’ll be made to work that little bit harder for your catch.
How to Prepare
Whether you take an on-foot guide up the river, or head on a charter boat to sea, everything you need for a productive day out will be waiting on board. Your professional guide will even cover your fishing licenses, so there’s not much you need to worry about. All we recommend you do is bring some drinks and snacks with you and settle in for a thrilling day of fishing!
Ebro Delta fishing offers a wealth of fishing opportunities like no other, so why not make it your next fishing destination – whenever you like?
Ebro Delta Fishing Seasons
With Spain’s mild climate, there’s no need for you to suffer from the January blues. Come to the Ebro Delta in January and get your hands on some delicious Seabass and have a warming meal too.
It’s still pretty quiet on the Mediterranean coast, but that just means more fishing grounds for you to explore on your own. Head upstream to target Catfish or fish the Delta itself for delicious Bass.
Just before the season really gets going, there’s still some time to get practicing, as you test your bottom fishing skills in the shallows for tough-fighting and delicious fish, as well as the odd trophy-sized Catfish.
As the rain carries the river into the Mediterranean, the fishing kicks in with plenty of creatures coming to the fore with the arrival of some food at the Delta. Get ready for non-stop action, targeting plenty of fish.
Seabream joins the inshore party, while there’s a flurry of activity offshore with the arrival of Bluefin Tuna. With the catfishing season hitting its stride, you’ll have a dilemma over where to go.
Peak season is upon the Ebro Delta, and so you’ll have the pick of the fishing. The offshore beasts may entice you, but beginners can also learn the tricks of the trade with plenty on offer inshore.
As the weather heats up, so does the fishing. July is probably the best month of the year for fishing in the Ebro Delta, but that brings with it plenty of tourists. Offshore fishing hits its peak, so come and test your strength.
The whole of Europe seems to have broken up for summer, meaning the tourist industry is booming. The whole Mediterranean coast is littered with tourists, and you can join them on a fishing excursion.
As the crowds dwindle, the fishing remains red hot. September is the ideal month to take advantage of the red hot fishing without the crowds. Inshore, offshore, and freshwater fishing are still top notch.
There’s still plenty of fishing to keep you occupied come October. Bluefish offer the chance for a tough battle throughout the month, while the usual suspects are sure to help you fill the boat with something tasty.
The season has drawn to a close and the crowds have disappeared, but there’s still some fish calling out your name. In the colder months, Seabass reign supreme, giving you the chance of a warming meal.
It may not be traditional, but why not catch a fish for Christmas dinner? With the mild weather, you’ll get to escape the darkness of winter elsewhere, all the while landing yourself a real treat to take home.
