Put in 100 fingerling bass, and in two to three years, the pond would have some good fishing. And they should make the bass catch and release only.
Out of curiosity I went to Rancho Jurupa lake today to check out the back natural lake. It does have some water in in now because of the rains, but is still really low. The long drought did a number on it. Nothing but a lot of bass fry along the edges that seem super hungry. I did manage to catch a small carp less that 6 inches though.Nothing else. No bluegill or sunfish to be seen. May take a couple more seasons of rain to get back to normal
