Fishing in Tamasos
The Tamasos reservoir is located in the Nicosia region, on the road to the Macheras mountain range, near the villages of Pera and Kampia.
The reservoir is relatively young – the construction of the dam was completed in 2002.
Despite its small size, Tamasos is distinguished by a variety of bottom structure and the presence of aquatic vegetation, which in turn has a positive effect on the black bass population. Some of the local fishing gurus believe that this is where the largest black bass in Cyprus can be caught. From the confirmed facts, there are cases of catching a 3.4 kg bass, which is an excellent trophy not only for Cyprus, but also for Europe as a whole.
The proximity of the reservoir to the capital and convenient access to the water makes the Tamasos reservoir one of the most popular places for recreational fishing, and therefore the fishing “pressure” is quite significant here.
