From March 1st to November 30th

Advanced Fly Fishing for Trout

Salvelinus designs a personalized fly fishing program, available in eastern or western Pyrenees, geared towards taking your fly fishing skills to the next level while fishing. You will learn when, why, and how to make adjustments to your line and tackle, select the right fly to fool the most cunning trout while polishing advanced techniques for getting a good drift, fishing dry flies, nymphs, and streamers as well as tips and tricks to tackle any conditions. If you have ever wondered how to fly fish in stagnant waters, facing the wind, under high currents, or in reduced spaces, the Advanced Fly Fishing for Trout tour contains all the answers.

5,500 EUR per week
Mid-March – Mid-June
Spring

The fishing season begins on March 1st when rivers are at their lowest water levels. The second half of May and first half of June are ideal for high mountain fly fishing and golden stonefly hatches.

Mid-June – Mid-August
Summer

Summer is the time of year for spending time outdoors in the Pyrenees because they are spared the stifling heat that can hit the flatlands. Expect good hatches in freestone rivers.

Mid-August – Mid-September
Late Summer

At the end of summer, average temperatures in the Pyrenees start getting crispier although not yet cold — an excellent time for targeting a large variety of species and waters.

Mid-September – Late November
Fall

Autumn is many people’s favorite time of year in the Pyrenees. Long spells of stable sunny weather and optimal fishing options in high and low river courses including tailwaters.
