The Guadiana River and its lakes are abundant with Barbel, possibly providing us one of the best Barbel venues in Europe. We have banked Barbel to over 30lb.

This river system provides a perfect sanctuary for these carnivorous fish, the water is teaming with natural food including crayfish, muscles and silver fish, a perfect staple diet. It is home to several strains of Barbel, the main two being the Common and Comizo, present to over 20lb and 40lb respectively.

  Barbel Fishing.

Pursuing them is an awesome experience for even the most accomplished angler. These Barbel are strong hard fighting fish that have probably never encountered a hook before, they will strip yards of line off you whilst heading for freedom.

Considering that our fishing has been restricted to during daylight hours only, we have enjoyed some cracking Barbel fishing. Our guests have had up to 35 fish averaging over 6lb in one day session and many double figure fish banked.


Experience the fantastic Barbel fishing this Extremadura has to offer, not only the fishing but the scenery. Our local area has mile upon mile of bankside, not only the out of the way river sections but these massive lakes are also home to Barbel.
