Fantastic fishing in a fabulous setting

Accommodation

Villa or caravan – you choose

Guided or DIY - We have a package to suit

At Ebro Mad Cats, our aim is to help you enjoy the fishing experience of a lifetime. Whether this is your first visit to the Ebro or you’re an experienced angler, we have a package to suit.

Ebro Mad Cats HQ is based just yards from the river at Riba Roja D’Ebre, with accommodation and exclusive swims on one of the most picturesque and productive sections of the Ebro. We restrict the number of people fishing on our banks so you can be sure of having a section of river all to yourself.  Chose either our casita and pool or our static caravan. Either way you will have air-conditioning, U.K. tv and self-contained cooking facilities. We will set you up in a stunning location with quality tackle and comfortable accommodation. You can get a meal, a sleep or a shower secure in the knowledge that your swim will be just as you left it when you decide to get back to the action. Check out our Accommodation pages for details

Holidays to suit all Anglers

11164631_10205534855865734_4763963211220859682_n

It is worth remembering that these are big fish swimming in a hostile environment, so for the angler who has no experience of the Ebro we recommend employing the services of our resident guide ‘Ditch’. You might wish to choose a few hours to get you started, or a fully guided holiday with a day or two spent targeting that fish of a lifetime – we can tailor a holiday to suit your needs.  Please check out our Guiding page for more information.

Plenty of big catfish and shoals of carp inhabit this stretch of the river, as well as specimen zander, bass, perch and roach. Carp sizes vary from doubles to over 50lbs, and average around the 25lb mark; these are wild river fish so expect fast takes and a spectacular fight! The catfish exceed 240lb, with specimens over the magical 100lb barrier visiting the bank on a regular basis.  Take a look at out our carp and catfish photo galleries.  If you are into your fishing and want a new adventure, then this is the place for you.

Adam Smith, WILD Jaeger Pro Staff (Michigan), is in Spain fishing for Wels Catfish (Waller), photo 1 of 2.

He posted these photos to his personal page yesterday, 14 August 2016.

Adam said, "Sleeping in a bivvy, on a clear night. Pretty hard to beat that. One small catfish already landed, and its time to fresh'n up the bait! Pescado numero 3 (Fish number 3)!"

Awesome Adam! (Ricky)

Its been an action packed week at EMC HQ for Dom, Glenn and Ryan! The lads fished like absolute pros, battling with everything the river could throw at them - but they were well rewarded for their efforts with a tally of over 50 cats. Great angling chaps!

What an incredible place! A truly wild river which wasn't in best condition but with the experience of Ditch we simply couldn't fail. Through his relentless perseverance to try and give us the best possible chance, we all managed pb's of one sort or another including cats to 100+ and carp to 40+. Left to our own devices we may have struggled but the guiding was superb even in the flooded conditions. We will all be going back time and time again to Ebro Madcats because there are monsters lurking in the garden with a stunning backdrop. Big thanks to Andy, Ali and Ditch for there hospitality and warm accommodating surroundings.

I had a wicked time on the ebro with the mad cats caught my PB on the first night of fishing ditch went the extra mile every day to make sure i banked fish.

The place is run very well and very friendly - always there to help you out,
Fishing is second to none, you have to work at it but when you get it right the fish just keep on coming,
6 trips in one year for me I can't keep myself away from the place.
Both caravan and villa are spot on.
All 6 swims have plenty of room to relax in the sun and chill with a beer or two
Top river
Top venue
Top hosts
Top value
10/10

Be back very soon

I had a great time here last October with my partner who's a keen angler. We stayed in the villa which has all the luxuries including, wetroom, modern kitchen, tele and even a pool all to ourselves!
Our guide Ditch ensured we had a fantastic stay right from day one when he picked us up from the airport.
We were shocked to be in our swim only 20 minutes when we caught a 70lb catfish!! Over the next couple of days we had more cats and even 5 carp.
I was a bit skeptical about a long fishing holiday but with the luxury of such a nice villa, ice creams in the freezer, sunny days and an excellent guide I absolutely loved it! Ditch even took us down the river on his boat for us to see the sites.
We are coming back again. Thank you to Ditch and family for an amazing trip xxx
