Council Grove Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers Approximately 180 ducks (mixed species but primarily mallard and goldeneye), 40 Canada geese, and 20 coots observed on 11/29.                         
Water levels 0.13' feet above conservation elevation (1,274') on 11/29.
Hunting conditions The lake flooded in late May (8.0') and was full during the remainder of the summer.  Food producing vegetation could not become established on lake fringes because of the flood and full lake levels.  As such, few food resources will be available for waterfowl this season.  
Expected hunting success Poor.    
Comments Low Plains Late Zone Duck Season is October 29 - January 1, 2017 and January 21 - 29, 2017.
