Stocking a cement ( fish ) pond, Beverly Hillbillies type of question

I have a cement pond(8 ft deep,8 ft wide, and 60 ft long. It stays cool and shaded, it has 4 in by 5 in by 8 ft long cement blocks, spaced 1/2 in apart, running the length of the cement pond. OK, it was to be a slurry pit for a hog operation, but the slurry pit was as far as they got, no building or nothing else was ever build. It stays full of clean water year around(freezes in winter about 6-8 in though. I was wondering what kind of fish could I stock it with, I like trout best and how many will something like this grow. Also what equitment would I need(such as an airator,nets,etc)

I don't know if you have any amount of fresh water to run through it you could raise fish like they do at a hatchery. If you donít maybe catfish.

I (on the other hand) loved the sarcasm.

You might call your agg extention office. They generally know what fish will thrive in your area in that kind of pond. You would have to net a pond like that around here. The racoons and heron would pick you clean in no time.

Good luck.
