Beautiful, nice work!

Thank you!
Nice to see them growing and happy after all the mental gymnastics every pond owner seems to go through prior to getting it established. I appreciate all the guidance I've gotten through here.

Beautiful fish! I love rearing brookies. Looks like you have exceptional water quality too!


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Thanks Cecil, yes the supply runs through hundreds of little waterfalls before getting to the pond. Love sitting on the deck I built last summer to watch the show. Was thinking of trying to put fertilized eggs in a box at the inlet and trying to cage some fry here somehow. Any thoughts or suggestions?



Back a couple years...

Do they have access to your inlet? If they can find moving water and gravel bottom you may not need to do anything.

Yes, I could add suitable gravel to the current at the head of this. Could add a mesh barrier in early spring if necessary to prevent predation of the fry to some extent if that makes sense to do? I figured the adults might clean out any that hatch without it? I like the idea of not doing anything. It's a specialty of mine... I'm pretty gifted in it actually...
