I am very green on building a pond or small lake. I am not sure where to begin or have no idea about the pipe needed for overflow and etc. Can someone recommend a good book to help me get started? First adventure is going to be a small pond for blue gill then hopefully a lake. Thank you!

I believe you will find everything you need to know on this forum:


There is lots to learn but many very knowledgeable people there.

"Just add water" is the book pond boss people often recommend. https://www.pondboss.com/item?id=163

We have a 12 acre lake on our property and it is a lot of fun. Just got my second bluegill feeder today.

a pond is overwhelming sometimes... I currently have one under construction .Gonna shake out between 2 and 2.5 acres. There's a lot to consider.

I will toss a vote in for pond boss,... thought the forum was really good...the magazine was maybe a bit overrated had it for a year and let it go.

This is a good read... I have the book
