garden stream

As part of the garden's design I have diverted some water from a boundary stream across the site to another stream to create this water feature. The fast flowing part of the stream is developing into a nice pebbly bedded stream. The fast flowing water has eroded all the mud and left just the large stones and pebbles. However as soon as the water enters the pond area, it slows down and dumps all the silt into the pond floor. I have to figure out a way to prevent this silting up, without restricting the flow of water into the pond....
Ideally I would like the same sort of pebbled and stoney bed in the pond area and perhaps have some fish in it eventually. Some thinking to do.
