Fishing in Evretou
The Evretou reservoir takes its name from the eponymous Turkish Cypriot village, which remains abandoned after the events of 1974. The reservoir is located 8 km from the town of Polis and 33 km from Paphos, at an altitude of about 200 m above sea level. The construction was completed in 1986.
Evretou, like other reservoirs in the Paphos region, maintains a fairly high water level even in the driest years. Thanks to this, the black bass population here is large and healthy, while the average size is larger than in other reservoirs.
In addition to black bass, pikeperch are sometimes caught accidentally, but it is quite difficult to catch them purposefully.
