The long wait for the first 200lb Catfish from the Amposta / Deltebre section ended last week with the capture of this mighty 218lb fish by one of our regular visitors, Lee Wilkinson. The fish accepted a bait on a known hot-spot in the lower Delta section (which will now be referred to as the WILKY WAY) and put up an outrageous fight in flood water conditions, being boated well… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing….

We’re talking about full flood conditions now with the Ebro surging through at a tremendous pace with chocolate ???? brown water. Not that the Catfish seem to mind, and there has been another capture of a monster fish yesterday for Mark Wilkinson with this impressive new personal best of 175 lb, caught on the first day of the holiday. Locating the Catfish in these conditions is not too difficult as… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. latest catch reports…. mid April 2018
An excellent trip this year for the ‘ambulance crew’ of Martin Campbell, Del Elliott & Ray Jennings who have all bagged treble figure Catfish in a 3 day trip. The first day belonged to Martin, who took a couple of fish on the legered chicken approach, with baits fished close to the margin up stream of Amposta. The first was a modest sized 55lber, but this was followed by a… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late March 2018
As the season draws to a close there have been a few signs that the fishing is beginning to take a turn for the better, and Martin Filer has enjoyed a good two day visit, bagging this new PB of 143lb on a chicken carcass at Amposta, mid afternoon.
The fishing in October has been quite difficult this season, with an Indian summer leaving us with a warm, clear river to contend with and the Catfish seemingly not too interested in feeding. However, where there is a will there is a way, and some drift fishing way up stream at Tortosa, beyond our usual haunts, has produced a handful of fish, including a couple of JUMBO sized ones.

The action has been thin on the ground again this week, with the Catfish seemingly less hungry in the cooler water as we come into the autumnal season. Thankfully the majority of the chances that have come our way have been converted, with long waits imbetween bites. Fish of the week was a 158lber caught by Richard Lawrence, who also caught a known fish ‘White Whiskers’ at 128 later in… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Mid September 2017
There’s been some autumnal chill in the air with some violent northerly winds whipping down the river. This is rarely a good thing in terms of the fishing, and action has been slower over the last few days. Despite this there was a decent brace for Darren Raynor on his first visit to the Ebro, with Catfish of 134 and 129 caught at Amposta.
A rare outing on the Delta today due to the Amposta slipway being temporarily off limits. There was not much occuring until a take in the early afternoon was connected, and a Cat of 123lb was caught by Steve Bamber, despite at one stage getting into a horrible sunken tree under the bank. The 200lb power pro snag leader was our saviour on this (and many other) occasion!
Another stellar week on the Ebro completed for Dave Toomey, Rob Curry and Darren Langham. The fish have showed up on a daily basis and continue to respond well to Chicken bottom baits in pre baited swims. Out of 9 Cats, 6 exceeded the 100lb mark, and Darren enjoyed a wonderful Wednesday, catching 3 mighty Silure of 155, 160 & 138! Rob had a great final day with fish of… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Early September 2017
The lb Catfish continue to be caught on a daily basis, and it was the turn of Isac Mircea from Romania with the latest at 107. Chicken carcass fished close to the weed beds was once again the successful method.
