I talked to the owner yesterday pm when we found the spot, he is going to look at the place this weekend to see whether or not he'll let us do it.
As for permits if he decides to let us do it he's built a small pond before, so I assume he knows all that stuff, but ill give him a heads up just the same..Thanks for the input.
We have seen wood ducks occasionally flying over but not consistent. Theres also some local ducks (greenheads) about 2miles straight flight from this spot. Also during dove season we can hear geese honking over at the mallard spot.
The creek is a slow/moderate trickle. we were going to build the dam 10ft at the lowest point of the land to get flooding of approx 2/3ft at the highest land point.
We were also hoping to stock some bass, bream and crappie ....
