Farm pond dried up.

I thought I needed to restock my farm pond after it completely dried up last fall then again this spring. Then in late spring we got a lot of rain and it filled up.

Today I went down to check to see if there was any water in it since we haven't gotten any rain this rummer. There was about 3 inches of water left. It was about 10 yds. across and 30 yds. long.

To my amazement there are thousands of 1 inch long bream floating dead in it with a few still alive swimming in the shallow water.

The eggs must have survived in the mud under the dried and cracked mud when the pond completely dried up.

I never new this was possible. Has anyone else heard of this?

Re: Farm pond dried up.

It has been suggested that water birds brought the eggs in from other places.

I suppose it is possible, but I doubt that thousands of eggs would be brought in. I wish I had my camera to show how many fish were floating and they all were the same size. About one inch long and they all looked to be sunfish.
