|Waterfowl numbers|| |
5,000 ducks, primary mallards, 60,000 snow geese, and 5,000 Canada geese.
Mallard Migration Rank 2 (1 = Worst 10 = Best)
|Water level||22.0 feet below conservation level.|
|Hunting conditions||No flooded vegetation with low water level. Exposed shorelines and mudflats will attract migrants. 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 to good. Possibilities exist for hunting on the ice along the shoreline. Field hunting of waterfowl may exist on south side of reservoir and on nearby WIHA.|
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.
