Top 10 Dams in Cyprus for Angling

With Cyprus’s long dry summers the water levels are low though 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.
We have selected a few that we believe to be the best.....
ever one of them unique in its own way .....
