High valleys in the Pyrenees
Catalonia is the eastern part of the Pyrenees, (See number # 1 on our map). We are handling different valleys of the region like the Vall de Boï & Vall Fosca, the upper Noguera Palleresa, and the upper Segre at the French border in the region of Cerdanya. A rental car is required to reach these remote valleys. From Barcelona the ride is around 2h30. Roughly, if you leave early in the morning, you will be there for the Spanish lunch time and you will be able to fish the first evening.
During the early season -before the runoff period- it is always possible to find fishable stretches but it is unpredictable. After mid-May, some lakes - not all- are defrosted, and the high mountain streams legally open. Best fishing period : from early June, to the end of September.
