Yep, open water the whole time, but just...

Each night there would be a skin over most, but not all the open water. It was interesting to say the least.

Let us know what you see for the next few mths (spawn , dead fish if any , sizes , types etc). A good chance to measure the cause and effect.

You bet. I think our pond is going to be okay. Opportunists will be identified!

Yes I am reticent about even going to look at mine this evening which should be thawed completely by now...
We just bought the property, and I was looking so forward to getting the pond cleaned up, then it went to 3F in east Texas!
It froze over hard enough, that I had a tree on my neighbors side, I did not want to drop in the pond and have to drag through and out...
But it needed to come down.
I figured why not, so I lopped it and dragged it across the top.
So at least some good came out of it I suppose.

After a 1000 pounds of tree did not shatter it, I felt safe walking on it.

I am feeling that the only kind of fish I am going to have left is dead ones.

My guess is you will have fish left to move forward. Rare for all or even most to die from a few days of ice.

Well correct you are, I finally made it out there last weekend, and looks like everything survived, frogs, turtles, tadpoles, baby fish, grown fish, like it never happened.
Even the algae looks un-phased.
Amazing, I guess they all huddled at the bottom and made a pact not to eat another because they were all cold!

Since that is likely the worst I will ever see again in my life, I can likely never worry again.

Enjoy the journey - do what you can after thinking things over - don't worry , that never does any good.
