No, unfortunately, you can’t. You will only have legal access to the river if you have an up to date permit from the A.A.A.(Agència Catalana de l’Aigua).

This permit of responsible use is free but compulsory for private individuals. It is an identity number and registration, where the environmental obligations and prescriptions of the section and time of the year are specified. You may be requested such permit by the Rural Rangers and the Catalan Autonomous Police. If you are on these waters without such permit, you can be fined up to 6.000€ per person/boat.
