I definitely think it's too small and that it's time to start digging. Start with the depth - should be twice that. The deeper the pond the more protection for the fish from both predators and the elements. Depending on where you live, deeper would be essential for the fish to survive the winter. I'd also add a few extra feet in length.

Way too small. You need something 3-5 x that large.
