Fishing in Asturias
Fontebona is situated at only 1 kilometre from the salmon river La Marea.
Salmon and more regular fish like trout can be fished in Asturias with a permit that costs around € 16,- a year. The permit is to be obtained in Arriondas, at about 25 kilometres from Fontebona. It shouldn´t give you any problems getting one. Showing your passport or ID, and filling out a form should do. In case things go wrong, we can contact the office in Arriondas, thus trying to give you a helping hand.
Salmon season is open from the third week of March and ends the 31st of July. Fishing trout and other fishes roughly stops at the end of September. But the law is quite complicated, and fishing depends on the kind of fish, the fish quotas, the river, the day of the week, and if you can keep the fish or not.
For sea fishing or beach fishing you have to obtain a permit in Villaviciosa, also 25 kilometres away from Fontebona.
