Council Grove Waterfowl Report

Waterfowl numbers Approximately 1,900 ducks (primarily mallards with 310 goldeneye), 520 Canada geese and 235 mergansers on 01/22.          
Water levels 2.9 feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 01/22.
Hunting conditions Difficult.  Lake approximately 99% ice covered on 01/22.  Declining lake levels have pulled water away from cover edges.  Hunters may find it challenging to conceal themselves.  A thin fringe of food producing vegetation exists along some lake edges, but will not be available to feeding waterfowl without precipitation and increases in lake levels.
Expected hunting success Fair/Good.  
Comments Low Plains Late Zone Duck Season is open Jan. 17-25.  Canada goose season is open through Feb. 15.
