Fishing in Kalavasos
The Kalavasos reservoir is located in the Limassol region, not far from the village of the same name. The dam was commissioned in 1985. The dam has a characteristic curved shape, its length is 500 meters and a height of 60 meters.
The reservoir is distinguished by a very complicated bottom structure, which is good for black bass fishing. There is an old mine in the middle of the reservoir, hundreds of interesting points, pockets, channel swings, roadbeds, shallow flats, bluff walls, etc., i.e. plenty of options, especially at a medium-high water level.
Despite the fact that the water level often drops to a critically low, and the fishing pressure on the reservoir is very high, the black bass population remains quite good. Today (2021) this is one of the reservoirs with the most stable black bass catches, both in terms of quantity and quality.
