Set within the beautiful Extremadura, a western Spanish region bordering Portugal. This is a remote area of mountains, forests, lakes and reserves, notably Monfragüe National Park and Cornalvo Natural Park, both sheltering diverse wildlife. A paradise of Spanish desert, full of Oases, be it rivers, streams, natural pools or reservoirs. Lake Orellana is the Jewel in the crown of wild Spanish lakes. It is simply mind-blowing in size and because of its untouched natural beauty, it’s rapidly become known as the Mecca of Europe’s big Carp lakes, a true under the radar gem, in every sense

The Lake

The immense and magnificent Lake Orellana in Spain is arguably one of the last remaining ‘untouched’ Massive wild carp waters in Europe.

At over 20,000 acres Orellana is one of the largest reservoirs in Spain; it was created in the 1930s via the damming of the Guadiana river. It’s truly the lake that time has almost forgotten. It has preserved all of this cultural and historical background for generations and only now is it beginning to invite the outside Carp world into its domain.

The Stock

These immaculate hard fighting wild Carp were first introduced in the 60s, left alone to thrive on an abundance of Crayfish and a perfect ecosystem. The numbers of massive Orellana Carp today are literally off the scale! We are talking thousands upon thousands of relatively young growing uncaught big carp with large numbers of the unknown new fish well into 70lb turning up each season.

Recently we have seen 3 new Orellana 70lb fish, with a Spanish record Carp of 79lb, caught in March 2019! These are truly wild, massive Carp, no names, uncaught, and what dreams are made of.

The Experience

On average we expect to see all our guests successfully bank fish well into the 40’s during their Orellana adventure, with the chance of something very big and special turning up. It’s the unknown and potential that makes Orellana so unique, however this is not an easy water! Work hard and the rewards are there, but just being amongst the natural beauty of Orellana makes this such a unique adventure, it’s so much more than just a fishing trip, the natural beauty and remote tranquility of lake itself will blow you away.
