The article presents a semantic and structural discussion of 113 names of open fishing waters, selected from four lakes lying within the area of the district of Elk. The toponyms in this article were classified and analyzed according to the model proposed by H. Gornowicz in a work on the names of the Borzechowskie lakes in the Kociewie region. Among the names gathered and presented, the most, 93, are topographic, while the names of 14 are connected with their exploitation, and 7 are commemorative. Structural classification allows to note that compound names predominate among the names of these waters (97). Represented in the greatest numbers are prepositional phrases, with the preposition 'na', very characteristic of directional localizational toponymic names, combined with an allative accusative.
