|Hunting conditions||Inflows in early summer raised the reservoir 10 feet and additional inflows around the 1st of September has raised the reservoir an additional 8 feet. These increases have resulted in flooded vegetation around the reservoir. The area from the southeast corner of the reservoir west to 9 Road is designated as "No Motorized Boats" and is intended for use by walk-in hunters. Exposed mudflats will provide loafing areas.|
|Expected hunting success||Fair.|
Refuge dates: Nov. 1 through Jan.31.
The Refuge on the water ends on Jan. 31. However, hunting in or from the shoreline inside the State Park or along the face of the dam is prohibited.
