Byron Walker Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers Some ducks are moving in.  They are not staying long as the food value is minimal in the lake.  At times we may have 200-400.  Other times we are back to a dozen or two.  11/17/22 at 3:00 p.m. it is about 20.  
Water level Kingman State Fishing Lake is down almost 2 feet.  Significant mud flats are exposed on the north and west sides of the lake.  No marshes hold water and and main water source for the marshes is dry.  I do not expect any of these conditions to improve without significant rainfall or a killing frost.  We've had a killing frost and water is starting to reach the main diversion box above the marshes, but that needs to come up another 6 inches to start filling the marshes.  With the current conditions and the marsh floors not being saturated, that will take several weeks if it gets done at all in this drought.
