I know many of you are familiar by now with my somewhat odd pond situation. I have a 1 acre 16' deep trout pond in Ontario, Canada that was stocked with brown trout (80x 8-10") three years ago. It then accidentally got bass added which have now populated the pond with a lot of smaller 4-10" bass.

I've finally decided I want to leave the bass in the pond other than the ones I catch and also add more trout, giving the pond 12 months of fishing (bass in summer, trout in fall and spring and through the ice). I just talked to the local hatchery and I've decided to go with 80 10-12" brown trout to be stocked this fall, probably in the next week or two. The hatchery recommend that I also feed the trout when I'm able to, probably twice a week given how often I'm at the pond.
Does this sound like a reasonable idea given the situation? I've realized the pond in its current state probably won't grow any trophies but should provide good fishing and good eating bass and trout 12 months a year.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
