Well I have checked the river flows an our rain didn't do much.

The Clack raised 4" an .21 cfs

The Sandy raised 1.2" an .18 cfs

Not much of a change to me hope the fish feel different.

Hahaha that's crazy! Just over 2/3 of an inch so far here in Beaverton. Should get quite a bit more tomorrow. I'm gonna hit up the mouth of the Clack Monday evening.

Nice, you get some Catfish?

Not yet.
We put in 8 rosy red minnows and 9 tiny goldfish, just to see how they like the water. Hopefully, they wont get sucked into the pump... :shock:
I was looking in the pond, and I saw something long and thin at the bottom. How did a twig get in? Oh wait... its moving. Turned out to be a giant worm!

I thought big goldfish eat the rosy's. The goldfish are bigger than the rosy's too.
But just wait until I get some trout it. :cool:

Here's a quote from Mark Nelson, Fox 12's chief meteorologist from his weather blog. Sounds like it could be an interesting day.
"Sunday could be a little crazy with heavy showers, some thunderstorms, and a classic setup for funnel clouds too. These will be the quick-moving “spring-type” thundershowers that come from the west, not the fun summertime southerly storms. But keep your eyes open Sunday!"

Funnel clouds... uh oh :shock:

I went out to see the pond just now, all 9 golds and all 8 rosy's are living well! Even that freaken worm that got into the pond somehow is wriggling to and fro. A few of the rosy's seem to be interested in the worm, and are I guess "teaming up" against it. All of them seem to enjoy the goldfish flakes too.

Nice, raising fish is a lot of fun. Having your own pond is way better than any aquarium. Have you thought of putting bluegill or anything like that in there.

Maybe bluegill, but not too much right now!
We put in the tiny fish to see if the water is fine for fish, but we havent installed the filter yet (the UV light came cracked...)
