Fishing at El Figueral
Spain’s River Ebro is world renowned for its catfish and carp fishing. At El-Figueral we are lucky to own a very productive stretch of the lower part of the river. That flows downstream from the lock at Flix, through Mora, Miravet and Benifallet to the weir at Tivenys.
We provide fishing from our private swims, hire tackle, hire boats, sell bait, and provide fishing licences. The licenses are ready and waiting for your arrival.
Catfish of over 100lb and carp to 30lb are not un-common, with some much bigger beasts around to catch. We have landed cats to 165lb and carp to 39lb from our banks. There are of course other species in the river such as Crucian Carp, Roach, Perch, Chub, Zander and Barbel. Gallery
The river is generally clear with a good flow of water, deep holes and shallow gravel runs that produce some great Ebro fishing.
Of course, friendly advice is always available regarding method, swims, and location of “hotspots” on the river. Personal fishing methods and personnel ambition considered. We believe it is the surroundings and amenities that determine the unforgettable fishing experience that we provide on this amazing stretch of the river Ebro.
Professional guiding is available on request.
Anglers and Families
We have been successfully welcoming parties of anglers and angling families for fishing holidays on the River Ebro since 2010.
Our spacious farmhouse accommodation is perfect for a family holiday. Because it mixes fishing with relaxing around the pool, barbequing, and enjoying a cold beer or glass of wine.
Our 4-birth caravan accommodation is located on the riverbank and ideal for anglers focused on the fishing. For anglers wanting to be close to nature we have tents for hire.
Fishing from Finca El-Figueral
Bank fishing on the lower Ebro is difficult to find. But at El- Figueral we have 4 swims that can comfortably and safely accommodate up to 10 anglers. The banks of the lower River Ebro are generally steep and so we have built our swims into the banks. Each swim is safely approached via steps and the depth of the pine tree lined banks helps offer some shade.
All our swims have been developed to take advantage of the rivers natural features and named appropriately: The Pump House (built at our pump house) and Bay (takes advantage of river flow and rock formations to form a bay) swims both sit on large eddies that provide the ideal shelter and feeding areas for fish in both high and low water. The tractor (there was an old tractor in it) swim is fished from a pontoon and is located on large gravel run and the Rock swim, named because of a huge rock that has created a hole that shallows out over a gravel run.
While we have premium bank fishing at El-Figueral there is nothing like getting out on the river in one of our boats. Explore the many opportunities that lay in wait for the exploring angler. Our boats are specified for self-hire, so that up to 3 anglers can spend leisurely time searching the holes, eddies and shallows or just exploring this wonderful river.
Each boat is fully equipped including life jackets and we can provide fish finders.
