Grass Carp are Hardy and Will be Fine in Winter Months
Grass carp are hardy in the winter.  They have no problem surviving under a foot of ice as long as the pond is over 4-6 feet deep.  They over winter well even in the northern states where I used to sell them from our original hatchery location in Ashford Connecticut.  Carp will not eat much during the winter.  It is helpful when they fatten up prior to November when their weed consumption slows.  The fat stores will get them though the cold months until the water temperature warms up to 50 degrees or more and they start to eat again.   You probably wont see the fish much in the winter, but having them in your ponds when the weeds start to grow is a great benefit.
