If it is just the huge cats you wish to fish for no problem.

Above the dam here in Flix you are allowed to fish 24hrs giving you the opportunity to really make to most of your stay.

The Ebro’s carp are famous for their fighting abilities being wild river carp they give you a real scrap whatever their size.
