Freestone rivers, chalk streams, lakes and reservoirs all around the country
It is true that many foreign anglers know about trout fishing in Spain through the popularity of the Pyrenees, and really they are spectacular, but there is much more to be discovered across the country, as far south as Andalusia.
Throughout the entire territory there are many trout waters from freestone rivers, chalk streams, lakes and reservoirs where you can catch wild brown trout and rainbows.
Because of the weather and the type of rivers abundant hatches occur and you can fish both either dry fly and nymph or streamer.
From spring to mid-October brown trout (salmo trutta fario) are fished for in rivers of all kinds, but there are many chalk streams and freestones. This is where the dry fly fishing and, especially nymph fishing is of utmost importance.
The center and north of the country are where there are more and most different rivers. Lowland and medium to high mountain rivers nestled in natural landscapes of great beauty witnesses to really a important cultural past, where the Romanesque and Gothic arts take on a special role, and some of these rivers are also crossed by the famous St. James Pilgrim’s Way.
Fly fishing for trout in Spain is not only about catching fish, is also inviting at one of the cradles of the fly fishing world. Visit Spain enjoying our nature.
* In addition, sea trout can be fished for in northern Spain and there are a few chances for Atlantic salmon.
