The perfect setting for catfish and carp fishing on the river Ebro in Spain

The river Ebro is famous for the huge catfish and carp that inhabit its waters and anglers from around the world come here to test their skills.  Here at Ebro Mad Cats HQ we are based just yards from the river Ebro at Riba Roja D’Ebre, with accommodation and exclusive swims on one of the most picturesque and productive sections of the river. We restrict the number of people fishing on our banks so you can be sure of having a section of river all to yourself.  Choose either our casita and pool or our static caravan. Either way you will have air-conditioning, internet 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 page for details.

Holidays to suit all Anglers

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 β€˜Ditch’. Our fully guided packages give you the very best chance of catching that carp or catfish of a lifetime, and we can tailor a holiday to suit your needs. Please check out our packages for more information.

Are you ready for the challenge?

Plenty of big catfish and shoals of carp inhabit this stretch of the Ebro, 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 our carp and catfish photo galleries.  If you are into your fishing and want a new adventure, then this is the place for you. For up to date news and catch reports please follow our facebook and Instagram pages.

There’s been an unusual number of mirrors caught from the EMC garden in recent weeks, Including 2 over 20kilos (well, 3, but one was the same fish!)
For me though, this one for @carping.adventures and @_m1tch_ last night is the cream of the crop! A mad looking mosaic fully scaled with huge plates on both flanks!
Amongst a sea of commons, this fish is most likely the 1/1000 which survived the catfish and the harsh environment that is the river Ebro
