Metadata[+] Show full item record
A properly planned and constructed pond or lake can be a great asset on your property. Private ponds and lakes can be used for recreation, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming and other water sports. They can also be used as a water source for livestock, fire protection, irrigation and production of fish for food or sale. A pond that provides these benefits and consistently produces good catches of fish is a result of proper planning, construction and management.
