I don't think I've ever read Pa and Duck Factory in the same sentence.


Tons of little ones around. I think we're in for another decent season with the residents. I haven't been to the NW zone to check water levels and birds, but I suspect it's about the same?


I'm due for a row around the swamps.

I've been up pymie every other weekend since early spring and have checked almost all water around and have found that during the nesting season the levels stayed at the norm and didn't raise any. 2 weeks ago with all the rain the NW zone got the swamps behind the winery were high as were Geneva. The road at the wire was under about 4" of water. Now pymie has been staying pretty consistent other than last week where the rock wall at the spillway was under.
It seems like there's a lot of small birds growing very fast and the numbers look better than last year at this time. Just last weekend I saw a few mallards with little ones.

Pymie has a fair amount of new borns on it.1 woodie I noticed had 11 littles ones.i fish from one end of the lake to the other.ducks do seem to be up while geese is another story.early spring for every 20 pair of geese I seen 1 of them might have produced.while breeding season was going on there were some guarding nest but flocks of 30 and 40 were flying out and flying in at night.Lake Wilhelm seems to be down imo.just afew small flock lindering around.the good thing is I travel a lot and many of the ponds I drive by has yearlings on it.
