Council Grove Waterfowl Report -
Waterfowl numbers No snow geese observed.                 
Water levels 1.3 feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 2/23/23.    
Hunting conditions Ice is forming in shallows and wind protected areas on some days.  Full lake levels persisted through the summer and prevented the establishment of food producing plants along lake edges.  As such, food resources are diminished within lake environments.  Lake levels declined this fall, pulling water away from cover edges within some portions of the lake. 
Expected hunting success Poor.             
Comments Low Plains Late Zone Duck season and dark goose seasons are CLOSED.  Light goose spring conservation order is open February 13 - April 30.
