Goldfish should pick at the algea, so if you have any goldfish or koi, that would work.

Also, a larger Plecostomus (algea eater) should be able to withstand most temperatures, as long as you keep it in an inside tank during the winter, they get almost 2 feet long. The only problem is that when they get that big they usually stop eating algea as a main part of their diet, so that wouldn’t do much good.

Add goldfish to your pond, they will help keep it clean of plants and most algea, and liven it up, but besides that, theres nothing you really can do besides scrub it off by hand
