FISHING IN SPAIN – FISHING ON THE RIVER EBRO

Fishing on river Ebro - Catfishing in Spain - Carpfishing in Spain - Zander fishing in Spain

Nowadays, Ebro River and the reservoirs of Ribarroja and Mequinenza are known worldwide thanks to the catfish. These places due to the quality, quantity, size and weight ratio are undoubtedly the top one destination for the passionate fishermen of this specie. Now, thirty years after its introduction and once the catfish has been acclimated, it is recognized specie with its regulation, quotas, fishing hours, etc. which is so important for the fishermen who like excitement and extreme fishing.






Do you know why such a wide range of species can be found here?

European rivers like the Po in Italy, the Seine and the Rhone in France where these species are present for many years cannot reach the number and size that can be found in Ebro. The biggest fish doesn’t need to be the oldest, it is the one that finds food more easily and eats many times a day. All this happens in Ebro River. The abundance of the food and the variety of vegetation in the banks and bottom of the river guarantee a wide range of species, which reach an important size, in the reservoirs Mequinenza and Ribarroja. I think in these circumstances nobody can doubt in the size of catfish, pike-perches, carps and the basses in the muddy and murky waters of these two reservoirs. You could never imagine this is the same reservoir and can find here different colour of water, various types of bottom, different bank width and even vegetation, and all these within the same environment.


The Ebro River is the best place for fishing!!

Its shores are full of wild vegetation and the average weight of the catfish, caught with released fishing method, is around 44 lbs (20 kgs). This area is really full of big fishes and they usually bite well and a lot.
