We have finished digging third pond and we hope to have all 3 ready for stocking by the end of July.We have been renting stock ponds at Gillham's Fishing Resort and plan to move our fish into our own ponds within the next month.We will have some great pics of our fish when we move them so stay tuned.
The stock ponds on the mountain side of our property have been a challenge to say the least . There is a lot of rock throughout the area where i need to put the ponds and we have literally had to chisel them out. We got a quote for a company to come and use dynamite but it was too expensive and would probably result in me having to, how shall I say ?? "negotiate" with local authorities.
It has rained constantly for the last week which has made digging a nightmare .I probably should have stopped for a week or so but I think I was just a bit too stubborn. We had been told it was impossible to chisel out the rocks This just made me even more determined.
We had put a protective bank around our stock pond area which paid off huge with all the recent rain. i cant imagine what would have happened if we hadn't
Even with the bad weather there always seems to be some good photo opportunities with the mountains so close
