Best time to restock pond?

I lost my goldfish to predation and so I redid my pond to make it bigger and deeper. I also made an in-ground gravel bog filter for it too.
So I'm looking to restock shubukins mostly. Is it too late? We're in the middle of autumn, 40F-50F at night and 60F in the day time.

Hmm, looks like I'll have to wait till spring to stock the pond.

I just stocked a cold climate pond, but I have a little heater in there to keep it from freezing. And there's still a few weeks before the air temp is freezing.
Spring probably better. I'd personally just stay away from super young fish, more fragile.

Thanks. I will wait for spring. I don't think fish from the petstore would have acclimated to cold weather right away.
It'll give my pond time to cycle.
