Council Grove Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers No snow geese.  Approximately 45 Canada geese, 90 mixed ducks, and 455 mergansers observed on 3/13/18.                                           
Water levels 1.99' feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 3/13/18.
Hunting conditions In 2017, the lake flooded in late March and generally remained flooded into early July.  Flooding peaked in mid-April (6.4') and the lake remained full through August.  Food producing vegetation could not become established on lake fringes because of the floods and full lake levels.  As such, few food resources will be available for waterfowl along the lake edge this season.  
Expected hunting success Poor.    
Comments Duck and Dark Goose seasons are CLOSED.  Light goose spring conservation order is open through April 30.
