Depths range from 3′ at the car park end to 10′ at the far end.
Several fish holding islands with over hanging trees, including an artificial “floating island” installed to reduce nitrates plus lots of lilies.
The far lake is Clarks Lake, the family name of one of owners of the Salisbury Gravel Company.
The first swims you come to are the deepest with depths to 11′.
The far end, which backs on to the River Avon is around 3-5′ deep.
The silver fish can be caught on the pole or waggler to the lillies. Maggot & caster for numbers of fish, but corn & pellet for quality.
