Welcome to fishing in Portugal. We are based in the small Portugal town
of Mertola. From here we offer fishing from our boat or guided trips
on the river for the shad when in season, or just coarse fishing in the
town. The town council of Mertola has provided excellent river fishing platforms
only a couple of minutes walking distance from the accommodation we
provide. the river offers fishing for silver fish and Carp and Barbel.
The Guadiana river forms a border
between southern Portugal and Spain at its lower tidal reaches. It is
considered one of Portugal's foremost Comizo barbel rivers. Its
tributaries and many dam formed lakes make for some varied fishing.
Fishing in Portugal is not like Northern Europe, no need to get to your
best spot early you have the place to yourself.The
river varies from fast flowing tumbling glides where, during the
season of April and May, you can take Shad on the fly or small silver
spinner, to deep slow pools where with one rod you can bag up with
small barbel and carp while the other rod and bite indicator waits for
the big comizo or big river carp. For
our Portugal fishing guests we provide detailed maps and GPS coordinates of the good
swims in the area so you don't have to waste time finding the hot
in Portugal offers of lot of variation. The reservoirs in the area
around Mertola offer some of the best Largemouth bass fishing in Europe
and are well worth a try. This tuned up perch offers some great sport
on a lure or fly rod and is a fish you probably haven't encounterd if
you live in Northern climes.The
town of Mertola has all the services you need, supermarkets and a local
market for fresh fish and vegatables. There are plenty of bars and
restarurants in the town so you won't go hungry or firsty. Mertola has
a long rich history with plenty of archiological evidence in their many
museums. There's more in Mertola than fishing in Portugal. We offer a
daily guide service or package deals where we can collect and return
you to Faro airport and provide accommodation.
