Cyprus has 23 dams which are well stocked with a huge variety of fish. The most well known dams are 

Achna dam, Asprokremmos dam, Evrarou dam, Kalavassos dam, Kouris dam and Mavrolymbos dam, many 

of which are open all year. 

A large inflow in early 2009 which has provided great opportunities for fishing many species. This is fantastic 

news and will improve fishing for many years to come! Please note: Due to this, some of the dams have 

been closed for fishing until levels become more acceptable again. The police and Fisheries Department in 

Cyprus have been cracking-down on illegal fishing in reservoirs so please check before you fish! You will 

need a licence for fishing in a dam or reservoir. Don't be put off, there are still many dams and reservoirs 

crammed with a huge aray of fish for you to catch! 

Fishing in Cyprus costs around 40-55 Euros per child and 60-75 Euros per adult. For this price you can fish 

all day if you like and it normally includes transfers, equipment, lunch and refreshments.
