Fishing in Ebro River
Where to start when it comes to fishing the River Ebro? The second-longest river on the Iberian Peninsula is a haven for anglers all over the world looking for monster Catfish, exciting Carp, and plenty of Zander. From the rocky gorges of Burgos to the delta in the Balearic, the 570+ miles of water here promise to take you on an incredible journey. Follow a fishing guide and get the most out of it!
What fish can I catch?
Ebro River fishing is pretty much synonymous with Catfishing, and for good reason. You can reasonably expect to battle it out with a 300 lb monster in some of the most productive waters here. However, that’s not all that the stunning river has to offer. Some of Europe’s strongest-fighting Carp can be found year-round, while Zander completes the trinity. Whenever you come, you’ll battle it out with some of Europe’s most-loved freshwater fish.
What to Expect
Whether you’re a first-timer looking to explore some nature, or an experienced angler trying to land that trophy catch, an Ebro River fishing trip has you covered. The winding waterway snakes through stunning landscapes, from the Pyrenees to the delta, with some impressive architecture towering over from the various towns.
Explore the river aboard a charter boat, stay in a purpose-built fishing lodge and explore on foot, or combine it with a trip to the delta and get your hands on some saltwater creatures, too. There really is something for everyone here.
Beginners can take advantage of short trips to discover these impressive spots, while experienced anglers can spend up to a few days testing your skills against the elements. The rapid waters combine with strong winds to give you a real challenge to land that monster catch. Expect plenty of action, but you’ll also need plenty of patience if you are to get that prized fish.
What’s the best time for fishing the Ebro River?
Due to Spain’s warm climate, Ebro River fishing is great year-round. When the fish go into hiding in northern Europe in winter, there’s always the option of heading south and getting your hands on plenty of Carp. Catfishing picks up in late spring, with the monsters coming out in summer. Zander can be found year-round, hitting their stride in autumn.
How to Prepare
Before heading out on your Ebro River fishing adventure, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got the right trip for your needs. Get in touch with your professional fishing guide to check what they suggest for your ability and wishes.
Other than that, you’re good to go. Your guide will provide everything you need for a productive trip, so all you’ll need to do is make sure you’re ready to battle the elements, and bring some drinks and snacks along. Don’t forget a camera to document your experience, as you’ll want to show off your monster Catfish to all your friends and family.
Fishing the Ebro River is among the best freshwater fishing in Europe. Why not make it your next holiday destination and live a little?
