WHY CHOOSE LLEIDA FOR FLY FISHING?

Lleida is a city situated in the Plana de Urgell, a very flat terrain primarily used for fruit cultivation, located in the Pyrenean Foothills. This region is home to several rivers, such as the Segre and the Noguera Ribagorzana, which are river stretches regulated by reservoirs used for irrigation. In the United States, these river sections are known as tailwaters.

These rivers harbor excellent populations of trout, some of which reach trophy sizes. Characterized by a significant organic load, abundant food supply, and slow-flowing waters, these rivers provide an ideal environment for rapid trout development, resulting in impressive sizes.

Beyond trout, the Segre River serves as an outstanding setting for fly fishing for barbel, pike, and catfish. These species are gaining popularity among fly fishing enthusiasts, drawn to the unique challenges they offer in this picturesque region.
