Day Trips In Spain Fly Fishing – Gear Available

Catalonia

Spain in the realm of the fly fishing world is pretty undiscovered, yet offers as good of fly fishing as any place we know of in the world. Most come to the Pyrenees basin between Aragon to Catalonia to see the towering granite based mountainsides and incredible breath taking Hemingway like views, but it’s the rivers and the amazing dry fly action in the spring, summer and fall months that many westerners are now discovering in Spain.

Fantastic Dry Fly Fishing Awaits You In Most Regions Of Spain

A trip to Spain should be on your must do list for fly fishing if you are traveling through Europe. Maybe you go there because you read the Sun Always Rises by Ernest Hemingway or possible because you know the Pyrenees are the mountains of Hercules. But the truth is, you will come back to Spain again because of the hatches and the terrific dry fly & nymph fishing along hundreds of lakes and numerous streams abundant with species of trout like browns, rainbows and zebra trout.

We focus on trout fishing in the Spanish regions of Catalonia and Andorra, we have the best fly fishing guides, accommodations, fishing licenses, permits & required liability insurance.

Catalonia

We decide where the best places to fish are due to weather and the time of year. We can pick you up from the train stations or the airports any where in Spain. Our fly fishing is located one hour from Barcelona and one and half hours from Costa Brava. We also have fly fishing in Picos de Europa National Park and surrounding areas, of Cantabria, Asturias, Castillo y Leon. We can also set up tours as well as fly fishing, let us plan your dream fly fishing vacation and tours to all areas of Spain.

We like to fish the 1st day on the river Ter (Anglès) the 2nd day at Tristaina Lakes or the river Valira in Andorra. Usually where ever is best fishing and hatches is where we are keying for guiding. We always confer with our friends and other guides as to what is going on in addition to rivers we know well in Andorra in order to know where would be the best spots to fish for that day depending on the water conditions, forecast, etc…

Hotels near the river Segre in the higher regions of the Pyrenees are pretty expensive, we like to put all our clients in more affordable lodging in the quant towns of Girona & Andorra. These hotels are 50 km or 32 miles from the Pyrenees mountains. The Segre mountain rivers are for more advanced anglers and clientele with a larger budget, this is why we like to fish in 2 different areas with clients. The high Segre for beauty and zebra trout one day, and a 2nd day in the lower Segre near Ponts fishing for larger browns and rainbows. Zebra trout are notorious for being selective feeders and are generally more illusive and smart.

spain trip

River Ter is born in the Pyrenees, the fish are relatively smaller than the lower reaches due to higher elevations, colder waters and metabolism effects on growth. Zebra trout are ancient relics from the ice age and can adjust to the harsh winter climates of the Hercules & Hemingway mountains. Down river, the climate changes into receding valley’s where larger rainbows and brown trout prevail, there is more bug activity in these zones, predictable fly fishing with tree lined rivers that enhance bug habitat, especially in the late spring and summer months.

Oscar 2018

Predictable insect hatches are a daily offering for the trout. There’s a good zone we like to concentrate on in both rivers, you can be sure we’ll be on top our game to assist you in being at the right places at the right time. This is key for fishing in all over Spain, as knowing when the run off schedule for that particular year is the ultimate key for success. Both rivers offer both dry fly and nymphing opportunities, as we like to tie our own special flies for these rivers that we know are proven and effective.

Rod, Reel, Waders & Boots Can Be Rented For 36 Euros or $42 USD Per Day, Call or Email For More Info. ALL FISH CAUGHT ARE CATCH & RELEASE ONLY WITH BARBLESS HOOKS.

Duarte Trout Zebra Trout

In the north of Spain we have three big groups of brown trout. (Salmo trutta fario):

  1. Atlantic, which is in the Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and Basque Country rivers.
  2. Duero trout, which is in all the rivers around the Duero river.
  3. Mediterranean trout, which is in all the rivers in the Ebro area (Pyrenees and so). The last one, is called Zebra trout for the foreigners, but for example, the big dark areas in the body are also found in the Duero trout. These trout are ancient relics of when the Pyrenees mountain range was born and date as far back as the dinosaurs and the basement of time. Truly a trip to Spain with all of its rich history, culture and food is one trip you will never forget.

spain fly fishing 1

River Segre in Ponts, is very good for larger browns and rainbow trout. The upper Segre near Andorra, we fish the river Segre and the river Valira at the confluences. This is a really good section to catch larger trout on both dries and nymphs as we know it well. The best month to fish are late May through the summer months, then again in the fall. Everything is based on what the insects, climate and time of year is offering. The key for us is our keen knowledge of knowing where to be when and where not to be why.

We advise clients to do one day in the upper reaches and one day down in the lower sections on both the rivers, the Ter and the river Segre, depending on what your goals are and your budget. Let us help plan your next adventure, here at Jack Trout Fly Fishing International, you never pay anymore for our services, this assists the guide during the season, so questions you may have can be answered immediately by Jack, and the guides can get home off the rivers and not have to be bogged down with clients details.

Best Fishing Guide in Catalonia Spain

I called Jack Trout Fly Fishing and he set me up with Joanso, my guide he arranged in Catalonia Spain. That day we spent fishing the local river with both streamers and nymphs. Joan was extremely friendly and helpful and did a great job of teaching my novice fiance the mechanics of fly fishing. Although it was the tail end of the season, Joan was able to put us on the fish and I was lucky enough to land a monster 3.5 brown on a streamer. He also brought us to a fantastic local restaurant for tapas and wine for lunch. I highly recommend Jack and Joan's services and will be sure to return to Catalonia!
