My questions is if I drain the pond down roughly 1 or 2' would this cause any problems. My plan is to lower the water level so that it would allow me to work on the controlling the erosion that is starting to occur on the spillway. My concern is ha

I don't think you would hurt anything by adding additional clay on top of the bentonite. I just finished up patching a rocky area in my pond that I believed was leaking. What I did was remove dirt over the rock, applied bentonite in power form and co

I agree with Mr. Cody about having a trophy panfish pond. I think you will be very limited on bass quality. And i never liked the idea of hbg due to the gsf offspring. It was almost impossible for me to get 5 inch bg after the otters got in my old p

One acre of deep water is MUCH easier and cheaper to manage than 2.5 ac of shallow water. Do your homework well before pulling the trigger on the bulldozer. Too much shallow water will be a manager's headache especially in later years as the pond age

They are predicting over 4" of rain between tomorrow and Saturday. That should add some water to the new pond and flush the old ones! Should clean up the metal on the new barn too. Wish I could have gotten the landscape fabric and rocks aroun

Have you thought about what options you have for aeration? It provides lots of other benefits and is good insurance for the brutal winter years. otherwise, I would say try to understand what made the water quality different this year since you sa

I will try to get some pictures or catch a few this weekend. When I say “fry” these are a little bigger than freshly hatched. I am thinking they may be BG fry that hatched this Fall or something. Either way there is a ton of them about an inch long.
