Council Grove Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers Approximately 90 teal and 5 shovelers observed on 9/24.               
Water levels 0.41' feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 9/24.
Hunting conditions 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/Fair.  
Comments Low Plains Teal Season is Sept. 12-27.
