Venturing into Catalonia for fishing in April and May brings excitement but also unique challenges. The unpredictable weather and river flows can turn trip planning into a real puzzle.

I strongly advise keeping accommodation reservations extremely flexible since water conditions can change rapidly. Otherwise, you might end up committed to a “home base” far from prime fishing spots due to water level fluctuations, or worse, facing unexpected long journeys.

During these months, trout emerge from their closed season and are more active, making fishing especially thrilling. However, snowmelt can lead to drastic river level changes. A perfectly fishable stretch in the morning could become hazardous by midday due to snowmelt.

To stay prepared, it’s essential to use apps providing real-time river flow information and stay alert to sudden rises. In mountainous areas, where most rivers aren’t dam-regulated, it’s especially crucial to monitor flow changes. Even in less mountainous areas, where rivers are dam-regulated, knowing each reservoir’s current status is crucial as they might need to release water unexpectedly.

Therefore, I strongly recommend not making travel decisions without checking water levels and maintaining good physical condition if you’re willing to take risks fishing in mountain areas where flow can change rapidly. Never fish alone and avoid booking hotels in advance to avoid unnecessary expenses if plans change suddenly.

If you need help organizing your trip or prefer not to take on all these risks, consider hiring a guide. During these months, a guide can provide updated water condition information, ensure your safety, and maximize your chances of a successful fishing experience.
