Gruža Lake (Serbian: Гружанско језеро, romanized: Gružansko jezero), is an artificial lake located to the southwest of Knić, Serbia. The lake was created in 1983 as a water reservoir for the city of Kragujevac and the surrounding settlements. The lake covers an area of approximately 9.19 km2, making it the largest body of water in Central Serbia.
On 21 June 2018, a gigantic wels catfish was caught in the shallow section of the lake known as the "Turkish wells". It was 2.4 m (7 ft 10 in) long and weighed 117 kg (258 lb). It took 4 fishermen and 3 hours to get it out of the water.
