Fly Fishing and Wine in Santa Cilia

Discover the first fly fishing lodge in Spain, established by Salvelinus in Santa Cilia, a 300-people traditional Spanish village by the Way of Saint James blending fly fishing charm and wine sophistication. Santa Cilia Fishing lodge is surrounded by waters inhabited by the native Zebra Trout and legendary vineyards among the dramatic Pyrenean scenery. Fly fishing, wine tasting, and gourmet meals to enlighten your palate; an all in one remarkably unspoiled place.

6,800 EUR per week
Early May – Mid-June
Spring

High mountain opens annually the first of June in the Spanish Pyrenees while a massive eclosion of golden stonefly takes place between mid-May and the end of June.

Mid-June – Mid-August
Summer

Summer is perfect for being outdoors in the Pyrenees; these mountains are spared the heat from the flatlands. Most mayflies and caddis hatch from mid-June to almost the end of July.

Mid-August – Mid-September
Late Summer

Ideal season for targeting a large variety of species and waters. The weather is still warm, and although temperatures start decreasing, there are still hatches in some of the rivers.

Mid-September – Mid October
Fall

From mid-September to mid-October, climate conditions are excellent in Western Pyrenees. An ideal time for sight fishing and catching some Autumn hatchlings.
