| Waterfowl numbers
|| Approximately 1,600 ducks (primarily goldeneye with about 470 mallards), 70 Canada geese, and 105 mergansers on 12/18.
| Water levels
|| 2.7 feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 12/18.
| Hunting conditions
|| Difficult. Ice is beginning to form in shallows and wind protected areas. Lake approximately 1% ice covered on 12/18. 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.
