New Pond #527162 10/28/2020 5:13 PM

Hi all! Great site with a lot of great information. Need a little help with stocking a new pond. We just had a pond dug on our property in Western PA. It is small, about 125' by 25' and 9' deep. There are absolutely no fish in it yet and was wondering numbers/types to stock. We'd like to stick with BG and LMB.

We have a friend that has a small farm pond that has not been managed for years. It is loaded with stunted BG. Would they come around (grow) if I transplanted 50 or so into our pond? Or, would I be asking for trouble and should look for another source. We also plan on stocking FHM around the same time and maybe a few LMB next year. Thanks in advance!

Fantastic info jpsdad, Thank you. My wife has wanted a pond since we've been married. We already have deer visiting it, but fishing is the main attraction. I'm lucky. If I offer her a meal at a restaurant or going fishing, she'll go fishing everytime!

Looks like BG it is! Thank you.
