Back your bush hog into the pond just enough to make the water turbulent and let it run for a couple of hours.

Yep I have done it a couple of time over the years. I had a guy over looking to buy a bull when he noticed fish in one of my ponds coming to the surface sucking air. He told me what to do saying the same thing had happened to him. I listened and it worked. Only lost a couple of fish. That has been about twenty years and I have done it twice more since then with positive results.

I work at a fish hatchery and we do it a couple times a year to ponds we do not have electricity run to.
