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.

The wind was tearing through the valley on lake Orellana that night. As we drifted off to sleep I knew it was going to take some spartan like rowing efforts to get us out to the fish when we inevitably received our next take. It was SO windy in fact, that I was really questioning if we should launch the boat at all when it happened? But it was the only way to land them in that spot; so to the boat it would have to be…
We must of drifted off, as the next thing I knew it was stupid o’clock in the morning and me and @amicowley were running towards a screaming R3. It was her turn, so I steadied the boat as she stepped in, and immediately upon setting sail we were overwhelmed by the wind and swell. We forced our way through the dense marginal weed towards the prize, somehow collecting the line as we went. At times I’m sure we were going nowhere, rowing like maniacs just to hold ground against the waves πŸ’¨πŸŒŠπŸ›ΆπŸŽ£
Minutes felt like an hour, and after some tense moments untangling the line from a submerged crayfish pot we finally bundled the fish into the net. Strangely, neither of us thought to look down to see what all that mad boating effort was in aid of. I guess we were just focused on trying to get back to camp in the darkness, but when we did look inside the net we giggled like kids! The only mirror of the tripπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘€ πŸ˜† πŸ₯‡
