About La Caravana de la Pesca
Driving on a tipical Spanisch sand road, you reach after 4 kilometers the banks of one of the most beautifull places at Embalsa Orellana, a 10.000 acres (5000 hect) cristal clear Reservoir, where we have a neat caravan straight at the lake. Equipped with shower, toilet and outdoor kitchen.
Who likes rest, peace and quitness is here at the right place. The rough nature and the mountain view makes you feel far away from work and stress.
The caravan lies at a very large bay on Orellana Reservoir between the dam and the first bridge at Cogalludo so you have a lot of water to fish in.
Dephts go till almost 20 meters at 150 meters out. The bottom changes from rocky hard to softer spots with low weeds and crayfish at the bottom.
Althoug Orellana lake is a very hard lake because of the wideness, there are allready a lot of nice fish being caught in front of the caravan.

Its important to know that the lake is full with crayfish (more in the summer saison then in the winter). Bait should be protected for them or choose plastic imitation baits or particles.

Middle of summer temperatures can go up till 50 degrees on a sunny day. For this reason it is not possible to make reservations in the summer.

At the caravanspot nightfishing is forbidden. Orellana has an official nightfishing zone where you always can go too.
The Orellana Reservoir (Extremadura)
If you walk down your driveway you will arrive at the lake itself where you can also swim very well. The lake is the only Spanish inland water that has the “blue flag”. And is one of the cleanest European waters. This means that the water is very clean and clear. Because it is a reservoir, there are also many different depths to be found, even right in front of your own house up to 15 meters deep.
In terms of fishing you can fish here for carp, black bass, pike, zander, American chanel catfish. It is possible to rent fishing equipment. Please contact us for this. We do, however, advise you to bring your own reels and bait sounders at all times. If you come this way by car, then extra lead is certainly not a luxury. There are also many crawfish in the water. For this reason, an extra supply of heat shrink tubing is definitely recommended. Night fishing is not permitted. There is a night fishing zone on Orellana and we can arrange a boat transport for you.
All boats should be registered, unless they are smaller than 2.30 mtr and are not motor driven.

The still waters of the reservoir dominate in the landscape, flanked by medium-high mountains (Sierra de Pela, 724 m., Sierra del Castillo, 697 m.) That protrude above the large surfaces.
