Cheyenne Bottoms Waterfowl Report

Waterfowl numbers  We estimate 80,000 total ducks, mostly blue-winged teal, but a good mix of species is present. No snow geese.
Water level Pools 1A is about 25 inches, 1B and 1C each are at 31 inches. Pool 2 is near 17 inches, Pools 3A is about 10 inches, 3B is about 8 inches, 4A, and 4B average 15 inches each and Pool 5 is about 12 inches.
Hunting conditions Kochia stands are in every Pool, but many openings were made and naturally occurred for hunting opportunities. Roads are in good shape, but snow covered. The roads should be clear by Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning.
Expected hunting success Goose hunting opportunity, for the most part, has moved to other properties to the north.
Comments Hunting pools will eventually be held from 16 to 20 inches. Pool 3A will be a primitive pool (no motorized watercraft) for the entire waterfowl season.
