Fishing in the Cares River

Fishing in our environment has always been one of the greatest tourist attractions we can offer. Trout and salmon are a attraction for many people who season after season come to the banks of our rivers in search of tranquility and who knows if a good piece to enjoy while catching it. But for those who want to try it for the first time, there are certain things you should know.

  1. The Fishing Season. It may vary from one season to another, but in general, for salmon it begins in mid-March and ends in mid-July, with a period of fishing without death between the opening and May 1. For trout in the Cares and Deva rivers and in all waters considered salmon farming, the fishing season begins in mid-May and ends in mid-August.
  2. Fishing areas. Salmon rivers, such as the Cares, are divided into Traditional Preserves, Partial Preserves, Non-Death Preserves and Non-Death Fishing Free Zones. The partial reserves operate as fishing-free zones 3 days a week (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). In these three days, you can fish in them with the only requirement of having a valid license.
  3. The most important fishing species are trout, salmon and redfish. Trout and salmon are well known to everyone, so we will not dwell on them, except to call on each fisherman to respect the minimum sizes (which in our autonomous community is 21 cm for trout and salmon, in salmon waters and 19 for the rest of the rivers) as well as smolts (juvenile salmon), which once developed in the river undergo certain transformations and migrate to the sea, to return after 1,2 or 3 years as adult salmon to breed.

To access these reserves(cotos) you must attend the draw held every year by the River Hunting and Fishing service of the Department of the Environment of the Principality of Asturias (tel: 985 10.55.00) and whose application deadline is usually in October. These same reserves (cotos) can be requested as reserves REO (Cotos REO) through the same procedure. Once the fishing season has started, you can also opt for the “surplus reserves”, which are those that have not been requested for a specific day.

Finally, from here we want to make a last call for responsible fishing. It is not necessary to kill all biting fish. Catch and release is an ecologically sustainable, ethically sound and in keeping with current times. A great fisherman said that a fish is something too valuable to be caught just once. I agree.
