Fishing in Sierra Brava with Carpers Paradise

Overview of Sierra Brava

Sierra Brava covers a vast area of 4077 acres in size. And this lake is one of Spain’s newer carp waters situated in the Extremadura region in Spain. It was created in 1996 by the damming of the river Pizaroso. The lake is divided into two halves, the top half comprises of a large fishing area, and the bottom half has many inlets and small bays. Initially when this lake was created, 15,000 common and mirror carp along with some larger fish were introduced into the lake. Some of these fish have already reached an enormous size of 70lbs. So, this is a perfect destination to spend your fishing holidays.  


This fishing holiday location is crowded with anglers coming from various regions of Spain and Europe. Here you can enjoy fishing, where the size of the fish may vary from 20 lbs to 50lb. However, due to overstocking in the recent years, it is becoming difficult to catch fish of 40lbs. The lake is still filled with much big fish but catching them is becoming difficult nowadays due to the increasing numbers of small fish. Here you can indulge in 24 hours fishing (including night fishing).
