Game SL. Carbine This report has been long delayed due to the many changes in the original plans that have been made and because of the difficulties involved in stocking all of the ponds. For some time this past spring we were afraid that most of the program would have to wait until
There are several varieties of bluegill available for fish and pond stocking. However, the most common are the northern bluegill Lepomis macrochirus macrochirus and the coppernose bluegill L. We recommend and stock coppernose bluegill.
The idea is that the Bluegill will reproduce to provide food for the Bass, and the Minnows will feed the Bass until the Bluegill spawn. If you want to maintain Channel Catfish, you should restock 50 per surface acre every few years, or more often if they are fished for. If one or the other begins to stunt or become overabundant, email us at info keystonehatcheries.

Always practice safe boating and use extreme caution in high-water situations. A standard initial stocking of largemouth bass, bluegills, and channel catfish is recommended for all ponds one acre or larger with underwater visibility of at least 12 inches.
Farm ponds are found on private lands across New York State. Most of these ponds are less than an acre in area and provide recreation for the whole family. Often, fishing is a main component of farm pond recreation.

Ponds that are not stocked properly in the beginning can develop unbalanced populations of slow growing, stunted fish.

Many landowners would like the opportunity to fish for crappie in their ponds and small lakes, but crappie can cause problems unless specific conditions exist. The Missouri Department of Conservation recognizes crappie as a popular sport fish. The purpose of this Aquaguide is to inform landowners of the conditions that allow crappie to be managed in private impoundments with minimal risk to the quality of fishing for other popular pond species.
