    Hey Lip Em - what did you end up doing? I have a 3 acre pond, and several micro ponds with both warm water and cool water species fisheries and manage several other private ponds around Lincoln - might be able to show you things we're working on. Pretty fun - posted Master Angler Wiper, Smallmouth, Yellow Perch, Redear and Bluegill sunfish from one 3 acre lake this year, plus a 4# Walleye. If you're willing to manage the fishery, and other parameters are in place, you can achieve some pretty cool outside the box goals. Feel free to ping me - I have also been working with a great excavation and engineering company building ponds around Lincoln and can put you in touch with them. Built a pond for me and Josh in the past six months - both drum tight and under budget.

      We are thinking of building a pond on our 5 acre lot, can anyone tell me the steps of building one? Do we need a permit? We live in Lancaster county and just want a small pond for recreation and wildlife. Can anyone help us by giving us answers on where and how to start?

        I would start by referring to our Pond Management Guide Series. You can find it HERE.

        In particular, see the chapter on Pond Construction.
