Council Grove Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers No snow geese observed on 3/24.  Approximately 40 ducks (mixed species but primarily goldeneye), 7 Canada geese, and 4 coots.                     
Water levels 0.10' feet above conservation elevation (1,274') on 3/24.
Hunting conditions Lake approximately 0% ice covered on 3/24.  Abundant precipitation throughout the month of May caused significant lake flooding (12.6' above conservation elevation) that persisted until early August.  Food producing vegetation could not become established on lake fringes because of the flood and late dewatering.  As such, few food resources will be available for waterfowl this season.  
Expected hunting success  Poor.   
Comments Duck and Dark Goose seasons are CLOSED.  Light Goose Conservation Order is in effect through April 30.
