Tracy I think you have a good plan and with a very thoughtful and well analyzed approach. It will be fun to see how it unfolds ! Flame if it gets to be a problem it can be fixed/reduced through management.

Rain man you bring up a great point. I guess I won't know till I sample the water. I have called around and am not finding places that test lake water. Does anybody know a place I here that does this? I also would like to know if there are limiting

What is water temp.? If still above 70 you can add a little fertilizer. It is late but if warm will work. I would add no more than about 1/4 the normal amount. The FA was not caused by fertilizing this year as it started growing on your pond bottom l

Adult mosquitoes will gravitate to food sources which often hang out around ponds. Do you see larvae in the pond? We also get bitten a lot more away from the house in more "natural" habitats like the woods. Common mosquito species feed q

Gregory finding the right balance of weeds in a pond is a challenging goal. At least it has been in my limited, short 5 years of pondmeistering. In my tiny nutrient rich 1/10th acre sediment pond I thought the water primrose was getting out of hand s

If you'd of asked me what the last thing I would of thought of that I could've caught catfish on I wouldn't have said soap. But then again I'm sure soap wouldn't have even been on my list either !

Questions & Observations
I think you did exactly the right things. Keep up the process until the water cools and plankton lessens. Please report back. Very high water temps lead to BG and LMB reducing activity and feeding.

If you search for evaporation and precipation for your state you will likely find a website with relevant data. The average amount will depend on your location and in some states the data is quite detailed. The monthly data varies from year to ye

I would lean more toward it being visibility than water temp Al. My pond has seen weeks of 91* surface temps and it didn't severely affect the way my fish fed. Some days were a little off, but weather conditions can contribute to that. If you can h
