is a very precious resource. Lakes and streams bring great financial and personal value
to the surrounding land. Spring Creek Aquatic Concepts specializes in creating the finest lakes, ponds and streams. Whether it is a simple backyard pond, a private fly fishing lake or stream, or a large lake of several hundred acres, our innovative yet practical approach will add the greatest value to your land.
Our expert Biologists will design, and build the lake of your dreams. There are several methods we employ to assist your lake construction project, from phone consultation for specific issues, to on-site inspection up to the complete lake design. We can advise and consult on the lake building project or we can build the lake.
Quality lake design delivers lasting benefits such as much larger fish, reduced sediment, correct temperature, very clear water, fewer weeds, drastically reduced cost of maintenance and a very natural appearing environment. An entire industry exists to maintain lakes. Most of this industry exists to serve lakes with poor lake design and construction. A small investment in high quality lake design, saves considerable investment of money, effort, and risk through the lake's life. We also redesign lakes, and perform complete lake restoration to achieve the same qualities of new lake construction.
We have a do it yourself lake construction package where we provide lake design, construction oversight and ongoing monitoring after the project is finished. We continually hear reports of "I wish I met you people the first I built this lake. I could have saved so much money and effort." This is where we begin the costly process of repairing what they have worked so hard to build. They go on to say "I read all the books." Unless you own a small scientific library, The books just don't reach the depth of detail or experience to take into consideration the unique combination of elements of each site to create a natural high quality lake or stream. Decades of experience are invaluable to accomplish these goals.
Nature creates a few perfect lakes and stream that produce clear water and trophy size fish. We study these lakes very closely. After we discover the missing elements in your site or existing lake, we then provide for the missing factors. The end product is a lake habitat quality that is pristinely natural. While we possess the knowledge to improve the biology, chemistry, geology, geography, and physics of your lake site, getting the sun to shine more often is the one challenge we have yet to overcome.
EXPERIENCE and INNOVATION. More than twenty-five years of experience have culminated in the creativity and effectiveness of our lake designs. This goes beyond our scientific pursuits to include practical experience in construction. Our Biologists deliver the technical as well as practical expertise to get the lake built correctly the first time. From this scientific and practical background, we have built trout habitats in places that surprise even other professional Biologists. From the deep south in Georgia to the searing deserts of California, our projects range from very small and highly aesthetic natural water features and swimming ponds to trophy fish ponds and lakes. We have also performed watershed analyses of basins up to several hundred thousand acres. If you believe trout cannot survive your site, there is a very good change we have a big surprise for you.
Knowledge of aquatic habitats alone does not suffice to create the best fishing lake designs. We have to be versed in fish genetics to provide the best fish for the situation. We deal with a broad spectrum of fish species. Many of these are threatened and endangered species. Lake habitat design and fish stocks are matched to ensure the success of your lake.
While we have a great deal of experience pushing the temperature limits of cold water fish like trout and salmon, these techniques greatly benefit all species of fish. The natural aesthetics we produce also provide very clear water lakes and ponds for swimming, sailing and most aquatic recreation.
YOUR VISION IS OUR VISION
We have an outline for your use to plan and carry out your project with as much or little assistance as you require from us. Read through the lake PLANNING GUIDE to help you in develop the best lake possible. Be sure to read the NEW TECHNICAL FAQs page for answers to your other important questions.
IN THE NEWS: We recently pushed the envelope again with a small trout pond project in the searing heat of central California and further improved the efficiency of our designs to new levels.
