The ornithological reserve in the northwestern part of the lake
is a bird watcher's paradise. This swampy area is the nesting
ground of the only heron colony on the Adriatic coast. Guests
can enjoy themselves fishing for freshwater fish: carp, pike,
catfish (prize catches are not infrequent) and due to the mixing
of fresh and salt water, it is also possible to hook eel and boor.
Prize catfish hauls can reach up to 150 kg and are a real challenge
for anglers. Fishing licenses (daily, weekly, monthly and yearly
ones) can be obtained at the reception desk of motor camps. Rowboats
can also be rented.
Apart from fishing and relaxing in the undisturbed natural surroundings,
guests of Lake Vrana are offered fish delicacies at the lake restaurant
