Fishing is a quiet and relaxing way to unwind from stress and work. If you enjoy calm days by the lake for sport fishing, and you have a decent amount of property, build and stock your own fishing pond. You can relax with the only company being someone you’ve invited, rather than every other local fisherman.
7 If you're building a dam for your pond, there's some level of engineering required. Call a professional, rather than planning it yourself, since it could be very complicated. This also might indicate that your pond isn't actually landlocked. In that case, research the fish and plants that live in ponds fed by rivers in your area.
Dig a test hole to the depth of the pond you plan to build. A fish pond should be at least 15 feet deep to make sure the fish don't suffer from too much stress during the winter. Cover it so it doesn't pose a safety hazard and watch it for one year. Determine the height of the water table in it and how it fluctuates throughout the year and how much sediment floats in the water from the soil.
