Zajarki Lake

Zajarki - New for 2019

Zajarki is without a doubt one of the best stocked lakes in the world! There are almost 200 70lb plus fish with 6 known fish over 90lb and many more hot on the heels. The fish are showing growth rates of between 10 and 20lb per year. The lake is a gravel pit which is around 60 acres in size holding well over 1000 Carp. It is regularly used for matches and holds many match world records for individual fish, total weight and biggest winning weight. Fish can be caught close in but Zajarki is known for its long range fishing with many anglers comfortable fishing over 150m. No boats or bait boats separate the better anglers from the pack and the rewards are truly incredible! Please note there is a very strict 5 minute rule for fish out of water. The lake is understandably very busy with most swims full everyday of the year with anglers from all over Europe although it is relatively unknown to UK anglers.  

Flight Info

We recommend checking flight availability before booking with us.

We are happy to work the fishing days around your flights and if you would like to add an extra days accommodation to ensure that you have the full 7 days fishing because of late flying times then we are happy to accommodate you.

For instance if a flights arrives late on a Friday (or other) evening we would pick you up and take you to your pre arranged accommodation. (Hotel/Apartment/Campsite)
We would then collect you first thing in the morning and travel to the lake. You could then fish 7 days and fly home the following Saturday.

As there are no other lakes with this immense stock in the Balkans and it is one of the busiest lakes in the world customers should be aware that the lake could potentially be full on arrival. Our guides have excellent local knowledge and so this has never happened but should this occur then a refund of £150 per person would be paid and alternatives offered to Ontario Lake.
