Hello, I just found this site, and thought I would join. I bought a some property in Palo Pinto County Texas. The land has a 1/4 acre pond, about 5-8 years old, looks to be in good shape. My plans are for another pond, somewhere between 1/4 to 1 acre. Size depends on costs, location, etc. I need to find a pond builder in the area and go over topos. etc.

Welcome! Plenty of Texans around this forum. The Pond Boss Magazine has an advertisers supplement that I think is available on the website. It will list pond builders/planners in your area.

Rusty, contact the NRCS. They keep a list of dozer drivers who SAY that they dig ponds. Problem is that there are no qualifications to get on the list.

Also, drive the area looking for ponds. Ask who built them, what they would have done different, and whether they would use the guy again.

Lots of difference in a water hole for cows and a home for fish
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Without a sense of urgency, Nothing ever gets done.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley Rancher and Farmer Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP
