Clinton Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers

Teal numbers are low.  There were no teal seen on the waterfowl survey today. There are decent numbers of wood ducks around, so be aware of your target during teal season. (9/23/16)

Mallard Index (0 - 10) = 0

Lake level 876.4 (Just above pool) 
Hunting conditions All of the marsh pools have some water.  At Coblentz, most of the water is in the middle and north pool, with some water in the southeast and southwest pools. There is also some water in east coblentz but it is still filling.  At Elk creek marsh, pools one, two, three and the refuge all have water (refuge closes Oct. 1st). Shadden marsh has some water from the last rain, but it is mostly dry.
Expected hunting success Success is expected to be low due to lower numbers of waterfowl.

IMPORTANT! Clinton Wildlife Area is utilizing an electronic check-in system required of all hunters. To register, please go to This will be mandatory for everyone hunting the wildlife area, not just waterfowl hunters. The card survey stations have been removed. Plan ahead and sign up for I-sportsman now.  

Please remember that trapping is also allowed on the Wildlife Area.
