Too early to open the pond? We've had such a mild winter in Maryland. I was thinking about opening the pond next week and getting the water flowing again. Anyone else?
I am going to turn mine on next week. I have such a huge surface area with the bog I try to let the temperatures climb some. It can chill the pond water really fast. My pond is sitting at 42 right now

I LET THE two small pumps run the 3000 gph shouldn't chill the pond that fast and the fish were out all day so it looks good they seem to like the water being crystal clear again the water was looking a bit thick and the blubber was having bubbles stick around for a minute as the water was not quite its best

When our temperatures start to drop, a good cold night will bring the temperature of the pond right down. The surface area of the bog is between 1/3 to 1/2 the surface area of the pond.

Just about 60°F today. The sun feels incredible! Making me wish it was late April!

45f and feels damp and chilly. A few sprinkles on my bike ride. Rabbits, squirrels, frogs and deer are coming out of their hidey holes of winter.

Dropped to below freezing when I left for work this morning but has turned into a nice clear sunny day
Hoping the signs of spring will start to show soon

Could be as warm as mid-60's today. 40's and 50's for the coming week. Maybe spring is here?

It's really nice out today but after the last cold spell the water in the ponds regressed to the mid thirties and the fish sunk back to the bottom
I've been checking the water temp all day, it was 35.5 early this morning and it's up to 39.7F

Our pond is bouncing between 44 and 48 since the bog is running it swings a bit warms during the day if the sun is out, cools during our cool nights.
