I am in southern Oregon have a small pond project I am working on it is at least 15000 gallons so far. will hope to put in a waterfall and bog area this next year. pond is spring fed with just topping up needed in this summer, no liner in it as I am digging into bedrock. have some goldfish and a couple bluegill in it along with some plants.

I paced it off and its over 100 feet long and about 8 feet wide so not a lake. its varies in depth from about 12 feet to 3 deep. I plan on getting another 15 feet in length and the water fall when fire season is over. cant run my excavator with fire danger. wife took some pics so hopefully get them on soon. thanks

So it's very long but not too wide. Still not a small thing. Looking forward to seeing photos!

Hello and welcome! But I don’t consider 15,000 gallons to be a small pond, LOL! Would love to see pictures!

have a hill side I am cutting into so that's why its long will hope to make it look like a small stream but deeper lol
the main reason for this was to get rid of the mosquitos and add another water source in case of wild fires.

fire danger has been dropping so today drained the old part of my pond only took 4.5 hrs to pump it out. The fish were not to happy when it came to netting them out. Netted around 30 fish when the water was low.... now where do you put 30 fish when you want to work on a pond … turn the swimming pool into the pond lol wife said it was ok so I am still alive. will get the excavator in there in the next couple weeks if work lets me have a weekend off. that's all of my updates for now
