Lake Rasinja stretches to the edge of the village of Rasinja on the first slopes of Kalnik's sub-mountainous region, surrounded by green meadows, dense forests, and vineyards, and covers an area of 35 hectares. Created in 1984, by building an accumulating lake and dam for the needs of the former fish farming area of Rasinja, with an average depth of 1 to 6 metres, the lake is known for the biggest fish growth in Podravina.
In Lake Rasinja, capital fish like carp, grass carp, bighead carp, and catfish are caught. Due to the constant reforestation of freshwater fish lakes, conditions have been created for the development of sports and fishing tourism. Lake Rasinja is a true paradise for an active holiday in a healthy and natural environment.
Along the shore of the lake, the embankment is 20 metres wide and the lake is deep along the coast, so the average depth is 1-1.5 metres.
Fishermen from other countries come to the lake and are delighted by the nature, the lake and the capital samples of the fish so that you can fish on the Rasinja Lake 24/7, and the staff of Hotel Podravina will serve you some quality catering.

The fishponds are spread over a land of about 70 hectres and are located a kilometre and a half downstream from the lake along the Gliboki stream.
