| Waterfowl numbers
|| Approximately 250 Canada geese, 1,050 ducks (primarily goldeneye with some mallards), and 700 mergansers on 01/28.
| Water levels
|| 2.9 feet below conservation elevation (1,274') on 01/28.
| Hunting conditions
|| Difficult. Lake approximately 5% ice covered on 01/28. 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
|| Low Plains Late Zone Duck Season is CLOSED. Canada goose season is open through Feb. 15.
