Did you visit Cyprus... May be some body will say yes, may be will say no, but most of that people who alredy have visited Cyprus will say that they didn't see dams in Cyprus. Yes, and South and North Cyprus have a lot of dam, because it is the only source of the water. Principally there are other sources, but Dams are most popular.
What does it mean? It means that every year dams are loosing water. Some of the dams already are empty. For example let’s take Lefkara. I think that you don’t know that it is one of free lakes where you were able to catch eel. But it is empty now. And I can tell many other dams which are closed for fishing…
I like freshwater fishing in Cyprus and for me that problem is very painful. Cyprus fishing is very popular and hope government will do their bet to safe it.

There are 107 Dams in Cyprus and the Kuris (Kouris) Dam is the biggest off them all. The Dam located at an altitude of 250m and gets water from the rivers Kuris Limnatis and Kryos. Furthermore, water from Diarizos river is diverted to Kuris dam via a 14.5 km long connecting tunnel. It has an overall catchments area of 300 km2. The dam is located 15 km northwest of the city of Limassol. It has a central clay core zoned, what is very important for fishing. The wall of the dam is 100 meters heigth and crest length, approximately is 600 meters.
Alassa village was relocated to nearby site (near the Kouris and Limnatis valleys) before construction of the dam. Old houses where flooded and now they stands as a great houses for the fish. The total dam price is around CYP 5.000.000. The dam is part of the Southern Conveyor Project, which carries water from the South West side to the South East part of the Cyprus.
More information about the Construction of the Dam you can find at the WIKI Kuris Dam
Fish at the Kouris Dam:
Kuris Dam is the house for the wide range of fish bride. Carp, Zander (Pike), Roach, Bass (Perch), White Eel, Sunfish and may be other breeds of fish.
I heard from some one that the record for the Carp fish is 12kg, if it is not truth please update me.
Kouris is interesting and great place for fishing where you can enjoy your time.
