There are many variables to consider when stocking your Iowa pond. This worksheet creates a starting point in creating a stocking plan. Of course, the key piece of data that is missing here, is knowing what your pond or lake’s current fish population is. We always recommend a pond audit with electrofishing to inform stocking decisions. Certain combinations of fish sizes and species work well, while others do not. If you’re unsure about which fish to stock, at minimum, we recommend a phone conversation.
