Fishing in Portugal.

Welcome to fishing in Portugal. We are based in the small Portuguese town of Mertola. From here we offer fishing from our boat or guided trips on the river Guadiana for Shad when in season, or just coarse fishing in the town.  Fishing from a boat offers a chance for huge Zander and the famous Comizo Barbel. The town council of Mertola has provided excellent river fishing platforms within short and easy walking distance from the accommodation we provide. the river offers fishing for silver fish and Carp and Barbel.
The Guadiana river forms the 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 spots.
