Due to the aforementioned attractiveness of the lake, night and boat fishing is allowed by law, except the period from 1st March to 15th June when fishing is banned because of spawning.

HEALTH PATH – RIBARSKA SPA
On the northeastern slopes of Jastrebac, in the valley of the River Ribarska, there is a well-known spa and rehabilitation center for orthopedic, bone and joint degenerative diseases - Special Hospital Ribarska Banja. Ribarska Spa is located 34 km away from Kruševac, at the altitude of 540 m. Beautiful nature and clean air are the ideal natural factors that positively affect human health. A net of paths that can be used for running, walking and recreational cycling has been formed in the forests around Ribarska Spa. Not far away (2km), there is an ethno mill “Srndalje” where even the most demanding guests cannot resist homemade specialties. The mill is easy to find since it is on one of the health paths.
Ribarska Spa
Ribarska Spa is one of the oldest spas in the area of south-eastern Balkans. It is one of the first six Serbian spas renovated as early as in 1833, during the regency of Prince Miloš. Warm and thermal waters of Ribarska spa have presumably been used ever since prehistory. In the Roman period, in the area of today’s Ribarska spa, there was a Roman colonists’ fort. The Romans cultivated the cult of beauty and health throughout their empire, following the Greeeks. Thermal waters were the basis of it. Historical documents cite that Ribarska spa (Zagrlatska parish) was given to Serbian Grand Prince Stefan Nemanja when he came of age. Princess Milica and her courtiers visited thermal springs of Ribarska spa. There is also a legend in this area of beautiful village girls who also remained beautiful in the old age, since they regularly washed their faces on the spa springs. Ribarska spa was visited by all the crowned heads of Serbia who also spent some time in it. However, the most beloved and the most frequent guest of Ribarska spa was king Peter the First. The spa helped his gout. King Peter resided on the first floor of the villa "Serbia". It was this very place where he signed the Declaration of annexation of Kosovo and Metohija to the homeland of the kingdom of Serbia on 25th May 1913. As a sign of love and regard, the villagers of Ribarska spa built special stairs, known as "the king’s stairs" which helped him to overcome the ascent easier. The first chemical analysis of the water in Ribarska spa was done in 1834, during the regency of Prince Miloš, in the laboratory of Medical University in Vienna. The most beloved and most frequent guest of the spa today is HRH Princess Jelisaveta Karađorđević. Because of so many visits from the part of crowned heads and royal families, Ribarska spa is called the Royal spa. Each year there are around 20.000 visitors in Ribarska spa, who come both in search for the right treatment and recreational needs. Following world trends, the management of Ribarska spa renovated and expanded the old Turkish bath which originates from the 16th century. In such way, WELLNESS and SPA offer was expanded and completed. Salt room and salt cave, steam bath, queen Draga’s bath, saunas, luxurious massage rooms, jacuzzi baths, open-closed swimming pool, and above all the old Turkish bath, make the staying in this centre unforgettable. For all those who love traditional cuisine and specialties of this area, we recommend an ethno restaurant in the village of Srndalje. You can get there on an organized mountain pathway 1.800 meters long.


ARCHERY– CARSKA STRELA
Archery Club „Carska strela“from Kruševac is a newly established sports club that operates in the town of Kruševac with the purpose and the desire to develop archery in this region.

Here are the reasons: regional traditions, psychophysical development of archers, development and improvement of concentration and tranquility in children and young people and a possibility to include archery in the tourist offer of our town.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBING– PC JASTREBAC

One of the most beautiful hiking trails is on the mountain Jastrebac. It is the trail towards Mečje rocks, affectionately called “Jastrebački meteori“ by Serbian mountaineers. The starting point for all the activities on Jastrebac is the Mountain Lodge which, in 2004, was named after Žarko Žarić- the deceased member of PSD Jastrebac. By all means the most popular activity of PSD Jastrebac is the famous Jastrebac march, registered as a state activity in the calendar of the Mountaineering Association of Serbia. Every year in October, about two hundred mountaineers from all over Serbia and Montenegro walk over the paths of Jastrebac.

All the people who have, at least once, visited the woodiest mountain of Europe want to return here. Their favourite hiking routes are the ones to: „Bela Stena“ (1257 m), „Stracimir“ (1390 m), „Maznica“ (1140 m), as well as the walks to : „Majorova česma“, „Dve sestrice“, the old Church of St.Petka, „Dolina breza“and the medieval fortress „Gradac“.

RAFTING - KAYAKING CLUB„KULA“

Kayaking club “Kula" was founded in 1996 in Stalać - on the banks of three rivers: the South Morava, the West Morava and the Great Morava. In addition to development of kayaking, the club organizes tourist rafting tours specific for their offer of historic and spiritual content in the authentic, natural setting around the South Morava in the part of Stalaćka gorge from Đunis to Stalać.

One rafting tour usually lasts for a day (depending on personal wishes ...) and it includes visiting sacred sites and historic buildings which makes its visitors even closer to nature and the spiritual atmosphere of the landscape. The program includes a tour to the mountains of Mojsinje (Mojsinje Holy Mountain). The area between Stalać - Đunis - Kaonik - Kruševac (about 40 square kilometers) people call it Mala Sveta gora or Druga Srpska Sveta gora. In Serbian history it is often mentioned as "Little Athos", and Europeans named it "The Door of Europe". In these regions of the mountains of Mojsinje there are over 70 monasteries, churches and church remains. The river South Morava intersects these mountains thus making Stalaćka gorge (around 30 km long).
