If it gets a little hotter, you will be able to catch your fish already cooked!

Fillet knife, dipping sauce, and some refreshing adult beverages will be all that you need for a nice dinner.

If your pond boils a few crayfish, then you can even enjoy a "Louisiana" dinner.

Same here Pat.

Our siphon pipe hasn't flowed since Sept of last year, so this will be an interesting year for us. The good part is that with our big pond pinched, the grass carp have managed coontail spread, and I haven't had to do anything but sit back and watch tilapia and GC handle everything.

That’s great! I wish I could find a way to rid of all the slender spike rush that is out over Six feet deep all the way around the pond….. don’t want to use poison

Will GC control the slender spike rush?

I’ve heard that they won’t eat it….that stuff is a real problem. My neighbors pond is shallow and it completely covered in it. I thought about trying some but with no computer other than phone can’t even apply for permit…. Oh well… the grass shrimp like it

Most think it’s the plant that grows around the pond in clumps in several inches of water. This CR— is totally submerged except when it forms clumps that float

107 here yesterday, where it snowed 3 times in May..
Glad I reset aeration for 10pm to 8am and kicked the water on to run about 15gpm at 57 degs., maybe keep it from a rapid change.??

It has surpassed 90 degrees 3 times already in June in NY. That is not common! Currently 91 out with a 74 degree dewpoint. Sticky. Many of us don't even have AC in our homes.

Note sure if this will work:

More on heat related news.

Will be interesting to see how the late spring to late summer will average this year. As hot as its been we are due some cooler weather ... assuming the average this year will be like the averages of year's past.

Hello.

To refresh the fish.

What do you think of a pipe put in the ground in the shade in serpentine for about 200 feet.

I could run this water where I feed the fish.

I wonder if that make sense.

Not to throw water on your plans, but I doubt it will help at all.

Here's some info for you.
In 65°F water, 35# of ice will drop 100 gallons of water by 7 degrees. Now run the calcs on how many gallons of water is in your pond & what temp, then look at what is the water temp and volume of water that will be in the serpentine pipe in the shade?

That's why I say it won't help at all.

Been several years since I saw full pool. Probably 5 or so years.


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.

I am thinking ~ 6 months since I saw full pool. I think our last bad drought was 2010-11.

I guess we been pretty lucky around here, over abundance of rain ponds been running over all spring on occasion. it did get pretty hot here this last week and supposed to do it again this next week but I like it way better then any frigid 0 degrees where the ground is frozen rock solid and everything is barren and desolate outside. our gardens are looking as good as they have in yrs, crops are a little late this yr because of wet fields early on this spring. I can relate to hot droughts tho, they do suck. Good luck guys!

Summer 2011 we had forty consecutive days of 100 plus degrees, with little or no rain. Many days 105 to 108, which is unusual given our humidity. Awful.

When it's 0 out I can put more clothes on. When it's 100+ out there's only so many clothes I can take off before the neighbors start looking at me funny.

You want hot? This is hot. Pic was taken inside my greenhouse on Saturday. Time to buy some shade cloth, I think.
