    well in the summer the temps reach 100+, while at winter it gets well below freezing.

    first, id like to keep the fish in the pond year round, and a stable population n whatnot. also, i think tilpia are out because of the the cold winters correct? someone please correct me if im wrong, but from a quick google search they say 70f for tilpia.

I can only imagine how O2 depleted a closed system would be in those conditions (unless it was really deep).

    All the Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass and various sunfish we caught were none the worse for wear however. Maybe investigate those species (although Smallmouth and Rock Bass are usually riverine species). Largemouth Bass can manage at a wide variety of temps as well.
    correct, the summer months get really hot. i personally would like tilpia, but i think thats out, so 2nd option i was thinking of was native blue gill and large mouth bass

    Largemouth are not very delicious. I 2nd the trout if the pond stays cold enough to support them, otherwise catfish are probably your best bet. Perch, as mentioned earlier, are also yummy.

    i'm from pa and there is no way a pond is going to stay cool enough for trout... my uncle has a large pond that is more than 15 feet deep and it doesn't even stay cold enough. I think a pan fish like blue gill or crappie would be the easiest. they will eat anything and are pretty hardy not to mention I think they are delicious

    also if your pond is big enough for bass they will be able to keep your blue gill population in check so I think that would be ideal.

    Why not a salt water pool? Must be some tasty marine fish that could fit the bill! (joking of course!)

    You eats Pike.

    Edit: P.S.
    Start a worm farm next to the pond.
    Feed worms your veggie scraps.
    toss worms into pond, to feed Bluegill.
    ahahaha, so true!

    I was referring to actual water temps, not the air temps. Factors such as depth, sun exposure, shade, etc can all greatly affect temps achieved.
