    I have tried to find an answer EVERYWHERE. I have a pond in Michigan, but it is attached to a very clean stream that starts in a swamp and goes in a forest. I don’t know where this stream will end up. I have a grate that prevents large objects from leaving the property. Do I need a puplic pond stocking permit, or not. Thanks

    Welcome Logan :) I think if you have any body of water, that flows into a natural body of water, you should NOT stock with gold fish / koi etc. I would think the DNR would have this kind of information.

    I'll offer you the same answer - contact your local DNR. They will guide you in safely stocking your pond.
