Very new to this and wondering what a good site would be for a small (1/2 acre) trout pond on the 175 acre property. Image is attached and I've marked on the flatter part of the property that there is a small seasonal spring. White area is where the farmhouse is. If a pond could be created closer to the house that would be better. Not too optimistic as you can see the property is quite sloped. High clay content in soil.
I thought the best location is on the north side where the two branches meet. Might be a bit bigger than 1/2 acre there. I suppose you could dig out in the area around the seasonal spring. What about the branches in the draw I've already mentioned. Do they run continuously from springs?
