WHAT CAN I DO
Fishing enthusiasts will find in this area numerous options to practice their favorite sport. From the option of fishing in a fish farm, to guided fishing in any of its modalities. You choose.
1.- Tavascan fish farm: It will give you the option to know the production of the trout, as well as the opportunity to fish. The fish farm maintains a close link between aquaculture and the environment. The trouts grow beside the river, in the water that comes directly from the lakes, without having passed through any towns or facilities and is oxygenated naturally with waterfalls; which is why they achieve an excellent product.
2.-Guided fishing tours: Fishing in high mountains is very rewarding because the environment is of great beauty and diversity. The valleys and mountains where the crystal waters flow, are a perfect habitat for trouts. Fishing in the Noguera Pallaresa River is conditioned by the water level variations, which is why it is necessary to take advantage of the first and last hours of the day since that is when the level is lower.
Fishing in lakes has its charm because you are immersed in a wild environment, although it should be noted that due to the non-existence of many specimens, it is not an easy catch. Canoe fishing allows you to reach key sites for much more accurate launches.
