Elk City Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers No teal have been spotted as of 6/30/16.
Water level Reservoir has been relatively stable this summer and has decent shoreline vegetation.  Currently there is very limited water in any wetlands due to drought conditions. Boards are in most pools.
Hunting conditions Simmons Marsh has been undergoing bulldozer renovation work in August.  Work includes repair of south levee bank erosion and borrow fill, tree removal in SW and NE corners and drainage ditch cleanout.  Widgeon Marsh had beaver damage repairs on Cub Pool.  No rainfall during middle summer.  Most portions planted to millet are still very short and will provide open water areas.  Some excellent smartweed responses.  Spraying continues on undesirable plants before seed set.
Expected hunting success
