The globally attractive Škocjanska jama cave system is part of the Reka river system, where the river descends into the Karst underworld. As far as Ilirska Bistrica it is relatively insignificant, but from there on it gains strength from its lowland tributaries and is transformed into a respectably potent river, which used to power sawmills and mills. On its passage from its source in Gorski Kotar (Croatia), the Reka is home to the indigenous marble trout, hybrids and the predominant brown trout. There are two artificial lakes on its tributaries. The water of the Klivnik Lake accumulation is clear, clean and relatively cool. In it, in addition to the trout, the pike-perch is one of the most interesting fish. The Mola Lake accumulation is renowned for its record catches of carp, grass carp and pike.
The Reka and the Klivnik and Mola accumulation lakes are managed by:
