About La Caravana de la Pesca, Spain
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 lake, where we have a neat caravan straight at the lake.
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 lake 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.

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 catfish. It is possible to rent fishing equipment. Please contact us for this. We do, however, advise you to bring your own mills and bite 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.
The Orellana reservoir in the province of Extramadura is the last of the three major reservoirs that control the level of the Guadiana River (seen from where it enters Extremadura) and lies between the La Serena and Vegas Altas del Guadiana regions (both of which are Badajoz province). ). 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. In the village of Orellana la Vieja, about a 20-minute drive away, you can learn Spanish culture or go to the nice bars and restaurants in the evening. Please note that other times are used.
