Vicki,

There are only three species of pond-breeding salamanders in the area, rough-skin newts, long-toed and northwestern salamanders, I you did not see large egg masses (grapefruit sized) attached to branches in your pond, they probably are newts or long-toed. The larvae will be difficult to tell apart, watch them grow, the adults are easily identified. If the pond is small with not too much cover, you will end up with rather few, the larve are canibalistic.
