Fishing area

In addition to the freshwater species, you can also find saltwater species such as sea bass, bluefish and pomfret at the river mouth of Amposta.

The Ebro begins in Fontibre (Cantabria) and crosses the rocky landscape of Burgos. It flows and meanders, becoming wider in Navarra, La Rioja, and Aragon where the fish become more plentiful. The depth of the river increases in springtime when the snow melts from the Pyrenees and swamps can be formed at Mequinenza, Ribarroja and Flix due to their low level. Downstream, the Ebro passes through Asco, Mora, Miravet and its medieval fortifications, Tortosa, Amposta, leading to the Mediterranean.


Spring: Due to the temperatures rising during springtime, the ice melts from the Pyrenees, the water level rises and the warmer water triggers a bigger activity of fish. In fact, the fish remain active throughout the day, offering a great fishing experience on the Ebro.

Summer: During summer, fishing is usually most rewarding during the early hours of the day and evening. To fish for catfish, for example, it is recommended to fish from 16:00-17:00 until midnight.

Autumn: October and September are very attractive months for fishing in the Ebro, as the sun’s rays are not too intense and there is still a lot of activity on the river. However, fishing on the Ebro is less fruitful during autumn and gradually reduces as it leads into winter.

Winter: Although there is somewhat less activity at this time, it is still a good time to fish for sander.

Top Species

Catfish: The catfish is the biggest fish in the River Ebro and heavy fishing equipment is needed to catch them. Fisherman can regularly catch catfish with weights of 50-100kg. In the reservoirs of Mequinenza and Ribarroja, they can be caught with pellets and other lures as bait, although the fishing guides in the River Ebro recommend using live bait such as Anguilla. The best time to fish for catfish is during the evening when they are at their most active.

Carp: Whilst it is popular to fish for catfish in the summer, Europeans prefer the winter for carp-fishing. The Ebro has a large population of carp with weights that exceed 20kg. To catch them, you can use the most simple of hooks as these fish aren’t used to them. Boilies and more traditional baits such as corn, bread, potato, stain and worm also work.

Sander: Fishing for sander has grown in popularity due to the fish growing in size during the last few years. The larger (up to 10kg) can be caught mainly in winter (December, January and February) and can be caught with both natural or artificial baits.

Black Bass: Also known as the American perch, the black bass is well-loved by anglers and sport-fishers. Weighing more than 60kg, they can be caught with live and artificial bait by spinning, and fly fishing can be done with streamers and soft baits. Others methods that work well are poppers, stick baits and surface lures.

Sea Bass: Sea bass live in the final stretch of the Ebro’s mouth, before it reaches the Mediterranean. In winter, fishing for the sea bass in Ebro can be performed at any time of day with vinyl or live bait. However, it’s recommended to drop them back in once caught because winter is the female’s breeding time. During summer, the sea bass still remains active, but more so in the early morning and evening times.
