Just a random question..... Stocked 1600 CNBG in February app. 2 inches long. I'm in MS. How many times should they have spawned and approx. how many babies are in there now? Just recently added F1's a month or so ago. Reason I ask this, with the rain we had last two days, I lost some small fry over the spillway. no way to know how many but more than I would like. Should I be concerned about this?

Just depends, but I wouldn't be overly concerned about losing some fry over the spillway.

Agree, almost all fish go upstream. Some small ones will get caught in the current but I doubt that the loss will impact the biomass.

At 30000 plus babies per year per female CNBG you should be ok. How many and what size were the F-1s ?

ewest, with the fish that small at stocking, would they have spawned so soon?

Yes 2 inch BG stocked in an open (or reduced #s) pond in Feb in MS will have spawned by now at 3-4 inches. Likely once in June. Will/may spawn in July and Aug. He could easily have 3-4 BG spawns this year. #s likely less than 30000 per due to size limits of small fish (egg #s based on weight of spawning female) .

I started seeing them making beds in May in several locations around the edge. I caught several CNBG yesterday that measured 5 inches in length.

Is that about normal for being stocked 5-6 months ago?

and

The majority of the fish that escaped last weekend were 1/2 to 1 inch in length. That would be a spawner from this year correct?

New to all this and thanks for all your responses!!!
