Best lakes, tips, lures and much more…

Black bass de Orellana

Where can I find information about sport fishing in Extremadura’s lakes? What level will the reservoir be? What kind of cover will I find? Which are the top Extremadura lakes for each species? Why are they top lakes? What are the main species of baitfish? What are, broadly speaking, the best lures for each lake?

Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular, here are some of the keys to success in your journey.

As a passionate of predator fishing, I put at your disposal this information, mainly focused on their fishing (black bass, pike, zander, catfish…).You can also find relevant information on fishing cyprinids like barbel and carp. To make the reading more enjoyable, I will accompany the text with photos from different days in Extremadura lakes, most of them taken by good friends. While photography is not my strong point, I take this opportunity to offer you my most sincere thanks.


In this website I am going to focus on the Extremadura lakes. I have lived in different places, so you will also find information about other communities. Castilla y León, Comunidad de Madrid… and even some chronicles about my fishing trips to other areas such as the Cantabrian Sea or the Valencian Community.

The main objective is to help you focus your fishing trips. It will be helpful especially if this is one of the first times you visit these bodies of water. However, if you visit them regularly, you may have missed some details and I hope I can help you anyway.

At first I created a section on fauna within this website. After a while, and in view of its success, I decided to create a website exclusively dedicated to wildlife watching, topbirding. Extremadura is a true paradise of nature and you can enjoy real spectacles during your fishing trips.

I hope you find it useful, that you enjoy browsing the site and of course if you have any questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact.

Cheers and good fishing!
