Tuttle Creek Wildlife Area Waterfowl Report

Waterfowl numbers

Several thousand ducks and geese observed in the area, using open water areas in the river.

Mallard Migration Rank (0-10) = 6

Water level The lake is currently 3.5 feet  above conservation pool.  The Black Vermillion and Olsburg marshes both have huntable water.
Hunting conditions

Vegetation around the edges of the lake and favorable water levels should provide good hunting opportunities on the main lake.  Vegetation in the marshes is thick, scouting prior to your hunt is encouraged.

All marshes and most all water north of K16 bridge is currently froze up.

Expected hunting success Poor, until more water opens up.
Comments A permit/survey is required to hunt the Black Vermillion and Olsburg marshes and can be found at the parking lots adjacent to each marsh. Please complete this survey. The data collected from this permit/survey supplies the Manager with valuable comments and harvest information to better manage the area.
