Bass Smallmouth

What type of fish to stock?

The pond is about 10 feet deep at the deepest and it is at approximately 6500 feet elevation. approx 5-7 acres. there is a small creek that feeds it. it is usually cool all year long. what types of fish do you suggest?
Choices:
LArgemouth bass
smallmouth bass
Yellow Perch
Bluegill (and various sunfish)
channel catfish
crappie

Native bluegill and or shell cracker first(8months) to let them grow big enough to reproduce and defend.Catfish and bass next of equal size(fingerling).If you put large bass in they will eat all the small catfish guaranteed. Crappie will do well but tend to over reproduce which depletes the food balance for your sunfish population and consequently stunts the growth.Make sure to take a sample of the water to your county agent and have it tested to see what it needs in the way of fertilizer and lime.This is a free service where I live and they can help you on the quantity and species best suited to your particular setup.Fertile water is essential to start the food chain to support a healthy population in your pond.Hope this helps you.
