About Petersfinger Lakes

Petersfinger Lakes in Wiltshire is a fishery that takes care of its fish by putting up a fence all around it, with electric wiring on top to stop otters and keep the fish from getting away when there are floods. The lakes have lots of different kinds of fish, like Carp, Tench, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Pike, and Eels.

The first lake is called Hands Lake. It has different depths, starting at 3 feet near the car park and getting deeper to 10 feet at the other end. There are islands in the lake where fish can hide, as well as trees hanging over the water that are good spots for fishing. They also put in a man-made “floating island” to help keep the water clean. There are lilies in the lake that make it look pretty and provide a nice home for the fish.
