I have 5 Katsura trees and wanted to plant them on the west side, which is pasture, for shade along a fence row. After reading that they need water every day for a year, would planting them close to our pond be better?

I would say a new Katsura tree really only needs daily watering during drought conditions. After the first week, you can water more like once a week, as long as the soil doesn't get excessively dry around the tree. Water deeply each time, and it should do fine.
