I will keep you posted. To show this excavator's character he told me last night " i would feel awful if you got any one else to work on my pond". He told his wife when he went to check it this weekend that going on my property without calling was OK because "it is still my pond until it fills".

It's refreshing to find people that still have that sense of integrity and pride in their work.

Rural America !!! Wouldn't be anywhere else!!

An update. The excavator has dug out the head of the spring and filled it with gravel and PVC to direct the spring into the pond.

Below the dam he has dug a hole in the stream and has placed a pump and tubing to pump that water back into the pond. The hope is to fill it at least and then determine whether the pond is leaking or not?

With 100 degree days and no rain it may take a couple months to find anything out. It is a process of elimination now.

i will keep you all posted.

Very nice, George and Mrs. G! George--looks like you've got yourself two keepers in each of those first few photos.

The quality of ALL your fish never ceases to amaze me.

George, That is what Gail and I are hoping for; still fishing together at age 59! \:\)

Fish get active around here when the surface water temp is in the area of 60 degrees. Sadly the surface water temps here are 32-33 degrees....... mostly ice.
