León province (Spain) fly fishing
">
">
LEFT: Three major reservoirs are in the north of León, the reservoir Porma, Barrios de Luna and Riano. Besides allowing fishing for big carp and trout, among other fish, the lakes regulate the flow of the great rivers like the Porma, Órbigo and Esla. This makes possible to fish these streams with excellent water levels during the summer months and until mid October.
RIGHT: The "father" Esla, as this river is referred to in Leon, is the main stream where the main rivers of the province converge. It is regulated by the reservoir of Riano. Their hatches of flies are magnificent all year, deserving special attention to stoneflies, with large hatches in the month of May and mayflies ignitas from early July.
