Golbasi is known as the largest lake in Turkey. Its depth is not more than 4 meters. The water is clean, and the bottom is flat and oozy. It is also rich in fish. In Gelbasi, you can catch pike, perch, carp, tench, or even crayfish. Experienced fishermen might be interested in joining fishing competitions. However, the lake has one disadvantage for fishing. It is not that easy to fish from the shore because there are residential buildings on one side and dense reed on the other.
The most convenient way to fish is to use the boat. For this purpose, you will need to rent a boat from local people if you haven’t brought one with you. It is also important to have your own fishing rod because there are no shops nearby where it is possible to buy one. However, a chance to catch delicious fish and a picturesque landscape compensate these drawbacks.
