Origin and characteristics of Divljansko Lake
Divljansko Lake was created in 1983 by damming the Koritnica River, as a compensation dam, in order to deposit sediment and sludge. The surface of this lake is about 8 hectares, it is 700 meters long and up to 135 meters wide, while its depth is about 5-6 meters. Divljansko Lake is naturally divided by the steep slopes of the Kuril Chuka on one side. The rehabilitation of the entire lake and the restoration of the fish stock was carried out in 2002, after the accident at the dam. Today, this lake is rich in fish, primarily carp and chub. Since 2005, Divljansko Lake has been stocked with carp, grass carp, bream, silver carp, baboon and trout.
