Over four inches rain at my place already, gotta be near flood stage as water was already running briskly through standpipe.

Anybody dealing with flooding yet?

I got 6 1/2 inch 2 days ago! And its raining here again right now. Seems such a waste seeing it go over the spillway when we know darn well in a couple of months we will be begging for rain! But my fish are loving it and this has been the BEST fish CATCHING year I have had on the pond in 6 years of having fish in it!!

8.4 inches last two days, still raining hard. Emergency spillway will get a workout for sure, I'm gonna lose a lot of small CNBG. Sigh.

Dang and it looks like you got more coming overnight. We’ve had most of it go around us which is normal here, we’ve had a couple inches so far

Wow, I think I've only got about 13"-14" total for this year so far.

As usual, I got about an inch and grateful for that.


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.

Just got ANOTHER 2 inches last night!! Good grief! Fortunately I have a good stand of sawgrass growing at the "entrance" to my earthen spillway and a good grass growing on it. This year it has stopped all but a few tiny fish from leaving the pond. This years rain total has already reached 30 1/4 inches!!!

Two day total 8.75 inches. Pretty sure we had emergency overflow, just hope water didn't get up in lower housing of feeders. That happened to one a few years back and I had to replace it.

We only got 3", but the rain was colder than the pond water, and it wiped out some ugly algae that I had been treating. The surface water temp dropped 7 degrees with the rain, and with the algae gone, the fish started eating very aggressively again.

Interesting, Al. I'm thinking my RBT might be biting better, but my CNBG worse. Don't know if it will affect other fish, including just stocked shad.

We managed to keep the docks from going under this time. Last month half the docks on the lake flooded. Still raining right now, but not too hard.

I'm similar. Hard to get a bloom due to all the excess water.

I haven't tried to fertilize the lake yet for just that reason. It would all go out the spillway right now.

Ross, do you fertilize at all when it gets warm? I've understood that this was dangerous re cyanobacteria, but maybe I've misunderstood. My place is infertile naturally, hard to get a decent bloom even when we don't have so much dadgum rain.

Got another1.5 inches. That’s 5.5 inches in the last couple of weeks. Another good rain and I should hit full pool for the first time in years.

We fertilize two or three times a summer depending on the rain. We get so much flow through the spillway that we have to wait for drier weather. You may be on the acid end of the scale like we are. We're around a 6 and need to lime badly. Hard to get a bloom when you're acid.

My natural pH is around 6, with alkalinity/hardness in 20s. After liming, more like 7 pH and alkalinity/hardness in 40s. We must lime, 3 tons per acre, every three years.

Acidic watershed soil is number one issue, pine trees number two.

We are about to grow gills from all this rain.

My yard has the consistency of jello in places.
