Program: Create a recirculating rainbow trout fishing pond and stream system.
Design: This 1 acre pond and 2,500' stream system was stocked with 500 rainbow trout. The streams slopes were specially designed so that the fish could spawn in the upper reaches and the deep pond offers a cool swimming in the summer. No pond would be complete with an island for turtles and seasonal ducks to hide out and feel secure. Since it's completion the system has become a natural environment with frogs, salamanders, and the occasional herons & hawks. Waterfalls aerate the water and keep everything fresh. The Owners and their grandkids love to fish and occasionally go for a swim.
The system was excavated, lined and formed with colored shotcrete. Five hundred tons of rocks and gravel were brought in to sculpt the water ways and landscape environments.
