Food has been eaten over night too, all gone when we checked this am.
You may be overfeeding. Generally, it's a bad idea to feed more than the fish will eat in five minutes. Of course, if the fish won't come out to eat while you're there, this rule of thumb is difficult to apply. But it's hard to starve a fish to death in a pond, and if they get hungry enough they'll come out.
If you have a tall, clear vase, fill it with pond water and look down through it at a white background, so that you are looking as far through the water as possible. This might give you a better sense of what color the water is.
