Fishing Spain’s River Ebro

Fishing Holidays on the River Ebro

What to expect at El-Figueral

Spain’s River Ebro is well known for its catfish and carp fishing and at El Figueral we are lucky to own a very productive stretch of the lower part the river which flows downstream from the lock at Flix, passing through Mora, Miravet and Benifallet on its way to the weir at Tivenys. The river is generally clear with a good flow of water, deep holes and shallow gravel runs that can produce some great Ebro fishing.  Catfish 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.

Anglers and Families

Since 2010 we have been successfully welcoming parties of anglers and angling families to our unique Fishing Holidays on the River Ebro, our accommodation suits those dedicated to catching  but equally suits family holiday makers who wish to mix fishing with a beautiful rural setting lazing around the pool, barbecuing and enjoying a local glass of wine. Our accommodation selection for 2020 consists of our self-catering farmhouse and luxury caravan.

Fishing at Finca El-Figuera

We provide safe fishing from our swims, hire tackle and boats, sell bait, offer professional guiding on the river and provide licences. 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 also believe it’s the surroundings and amenities that finally determine the unforgettable fishing experience on the amazing river Ebro.
Bank fishing on the lower Ebro is difficult to find, but at El- Figueral we (currently) have 4 swims that can comfortably and safely accommodate up to 10 anglers. The banks of the lower River Ebro are generally steep, so we have built our swims into the banks such that they are safely approached via steps, the depth of the pine tree lined banks helps offer some shade during the long hot sunny summer days.
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.
