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 where stated and
for a few Trout reservoirs which are open normally from June to December.
We have selected a few that Zak believes to be the best.....
every one of them unique in its own way .....

Achna Dam is one of the most popular reservoirs situated in the Ammochostos/Famagusta district.
It is easily accessible from the popular resorts of Ayia Napa and Protaras, and only a 45 minute drive from the once quiet town of Larnaka.
Mirror and Common Carp and Roach were the main fish caught here. However you can also catch Large mouth Bass or try for one of the rare catches of the monsters Catfish lurking in the depths.

Warning !
The Carp in Achna is well know for their strong fighting capabilities.
Ensure you are physically fit because a day of catching Achna carp
(averaging 4lb-8lb.) ..... can be strenuous !!!!
