Coarse fishing in Turkey

Does anyone know what good fishing is to be had in Turkish rivers and lakes.

I have been to Turkey many times but have yet to find time to look into the coarse fishing prospects.

Thumbs up Re: Coarse fishing in Turkey

Garry....

Just past the administrative capital for this area, Aydin - take the road off towards a place called Cine.

(Turn right at McDonalds if you were coming from the motorway)

Head off about 20km and you will see a massive Dam on the left hand side.

You can drive up the hills to the top of the dam where you will find an absolutely massive lake and filled with top quality Carp 15kg plus.

Fishing there is free and its a great day out for a BBQ too.

In Turkey, Carp is considered a delicacy costing up to 15YTL/Kilo in some fishmongers.


Have fished it many times, floating crust is so much fun there!

Re: Coarse fishing in Turkey

Carp, a delicacy, this brings tears to my eyes Merlin!!

I caught a 16lb and 18lb carp in my local water in England last monday evening. Thats worth nearly 100 by Turkish fishmongers prices.

I have see Carp for Sale in Harrods, Knightsbridge, I know they are popular with Eastern Europeans but didn't realise they were found in Turkey.

How about our river fish, barbel, chub, roach & bream. Are they native to Turkey?

To be perfectly honest Garry, most of my winter is taken up with Shooting Pigs (and I dont mean the coppers )

I have fished some rivers, roach are bream are common, havent had the pleasure of chub, pike or barbel.

You arent gonna like this Garry..... they eat roach too. BBQ

Roach & Chips on a Friday night Garry!

Could be a big hit in the UK and just maybe they would get hooked
