The cooler months from November to March are the perfect times to be more fruitful in catching the zander fish.
When fishing for catfish, it is less strenuous because the fish are in deeper depths, are much slower and more technique is involved. The search has to be more subtle, with a greater degree of concentration, seeking the slightest sign of them before they detect and reject you.
Due to various factors, there is no fixed fishing area and fishing spots vary depending on the level of the reservoir and the colour of the water.
This is especially so, during the autumn and winter months at the Mequinensa Reservoir, whether it has remained high, as the zander seek it at its highest, having spent many years in the Chiprana Escatron. Then we need to find an area which has a large population of good size zander, since most adults are seeking this reservoir area to spawn.
Due to the size and proximity of spawning and its location in the months of February, March, April and May, it is possible to combine fishing for zander with catfish, although this depends on the reservoir level and colour flow. When the river Ebro floods and its colour is "chocolate", in the area of Escatron Chiprana, we can forget about walleye, but it is more fruitful for fishing catfish.
If during the autumn and winter, the reservoir has remained low, this area will rise Chiprana Escatron and so the fishing will be very different and many miles downstream, (Caspe), having dates and days when it is possible to capture many specimens of all sizes. This is why guides and fishermen who do well, are those who adapt to fishing conditions and not vice versa.
Although fishing is never an exact science, otherwise it wouldn't be fishing, it is very important to know what to do and where it is convenient to fish at all times.
