Fishing in Catalonia

Posted by Catalunya Casas on August 28th, 2017

There’s lots of fishing opportunities within this Spanish region, but there are two places that tend to be very popular amongst travellers. These are the Segre Valley, where you can find wild brown and rainbow trout, and the high valleys, where you may be lucky enough to find some pretty decent Lake Brook trout.

If you’re relatively new to fishing, or are unsure where to fish in Catalonia, there are a number of local companies who offer fishing tours around the area. These tours make it easy to enjoy fishing abroad, picking you up from your villa in Spain and transporting you to all the very best local fishing areas.

If you’re more interested in having a leisurely fishing day at your own pace, you can! L'Estartit’s Platja de la Pletera is perfect for beach fishing, while the River Onyar in Girona is a good freshwater location for barbel and carp. For deep sea fishing, consider the coastal towns between Barcelona and Blanes.

When to Book a Catalonia Villa Rental


In terms of fishing, there isn’t a bad time to take a holiday in Spain. In fact, even during the early season it’s still possible to find fishable stretches of water. However, if you want the best chances of getting a catch, rent a house in Spain from early June to late September, when the mountain streams are open.

The Legal Bit


Don’t forget that you will need a fishing license to fish in Barcelona, but these are easy to get! You can either get a license before your Spain vacation by arranging for one online, or you can venture out from your Spain villa during your trip to a local tackle shop which may be able to help you out with a license. If you’re taking an organised tour, your tour operator should already have all the paperwork you need.
