Tribalj Lake

Croatia

Welcome to Croatia

The Lake

Tribalj lake is an artificial lake in Vinodol, in the hinterland of Crikvenica and is just a few kilometres from the sea. The average depth is four metres and fishing is superb because there aren’t any snags or obstacles. The lake is a good size of 41 hectares and plenty of water in front of you and is full of some of the hardest fighting carp you will come across.

There are plenty of swims on all three sides of the lake and we will always find the best spots and swims to get the most out of this incredible lake for your holiday.

The Stock

Tribalj is home to some of Europe’s largest Carp with a current lake record of 69.9lbs (31.7 kg).

With a stock of more than 2000 carp of which four now tipping the scales over 60lb and another fifty carp now weigh over the 45lb barrier. You are sure to get in on some of the big fish action during your holiday. The lake stock consists of 50% of the carp are mirrors, with the balance consisting of commons & some absolutely fantastic linear carp.

The Experience

As seen on ITV's Monster carp, arguably the most beautiful lake in Croatia. Tribalj delivers both remarkable views and fantastic carp fishing.

The lake is set close to the sea and deep in the foot of a wide sweeping valley. The weather can change in the blink of an eye so be prepared for some really wild fishing.
