American perch or black bass (Micropterus salmoides) is an invasive specie that lives in the swamp of Riba-roja since the 50's. For many years was the king of the swamp, making this area a fishing destination, in fact it was known as the paradise of black bass fishing. Nowadays, due to the new invasive species, black bass population has been reduced. Some of the best black bass fishermen use this swamp to train due the difficult situation. Since 2015, Cataluña Pro Bass fishing club is headquartered in our facilities. We have been organaizing Cataluña Bass boat championship since 2011 togheter. From the club and the campsite, we advocate for catch and realease.
Burst of adrenaline, nerves, despair and fun are some of the most concurrent emotions that make this fish the most addictive. Usually it is fished from boat.

Black bass fishing, spinning and casting
Black bass fishing, especially outside of the busiest days of the year, has many options and different combinations. A variety of lures, different speeds, depths and areas make fishing black bass really difficult.
For spinning fishing, particularly in the area where we are, it is common to use a fishing boat or kayak. Furthermore, the boats can have a supplementary electric motor which takes us through kilometers of swamp quietly.
