Perfect Dams in Cyprus for Fishing
With Cyprus’s long dry summers the water levels are low through the summer months and rise again in March and April . There is no closed season for fishing except for a few trout reservoirs which are open normally from June to December.
LYMBIA - situated on the road from Larnaka to Lefkosia a small reservoir with few swims stocked with Mirror, Common and Koi Carp, Roach, Bass, Catfish and Tilapia. A few double figure carp can be had on a good day !
LEFKARA -just below the popular lace making village of Lefkara this reservoir even though large, has little access. Carp, Roach, Bleak, Eel, Trout and 'Rapfen' Carp a predator fish only found in this reservoir....
DHYPOTAMOS - on the road from Larnaka to Lemesos. This reservoir has a variety of healthy fish including Carp, Roach, Tench, Bass, Zander, Silver Bream and Catfish. You can expect anything from a sensitive Roach to a rod bending Carp.
KALAVASOS - 20 minutes from Lemesos towards Larnaka. Carp from 3 to 20 lb., Large Roach over 2 lb. and plenty of Bass. Fishing can start off slow but a well baited swim will bring them in ....
