Elk City Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers We have seen around 200 teal a day around the reservoir.  There may be more along the shoreline that we cannot see.  A couple of small groups on some ponds. 
Water level Reservoir at pool level.  Reservoir flooded up this summer 17 ft so shoreline vegetation was impacted.  Very limited water in most marshes.
Hunting conditions Simmons Marsh upgrades starting in August.  Work includes additional repair of levee bank erosion and borrow fill, A new Water Control Structure is completed in Simmons Marsh and dirt work will back fill will continue next week after curing.  Most portions planted to millet late after drying out and hopefully will have survived and will provide open water areas.  Some excellent smartweed responses.
Expected hunting success Poor
