Default When to move fish??

I have way too many fish (the little suckers breed like rabbits) and I
posted on my local Freecycle list to see if anyone would like some for their
ponds..I have had a few replies and was planning on waiting for spring to
transfer them but thought I would ask for ideas about when would be a good
time to do this...the best time that will cause the least stress on the
fish.
Thanks

If you live in Ky/Tn, my suggestion would be to wait until the water warms up a
bit, because at this point, unless you are moving the fish to another pond with
the same temperature and/or water quality, you may stress the fish too much. If
it were me, I would wait until spring.

Now is fine, if as George mentioned, the water is the same as they're in
now. Or, if they will be in a quarantine situation inside, ideal.
Otherwise, imho, wait till late spring after the fishes immune system is up
and running. ~ jan
