Central Willamette valley, public land on a big "corridor"....
For the last 4 weeks or so we've shot mostly buffs, couple of wigeon, ringneck, mallards. Last weekend we limited on teal and a pair of mallards by 10am. Lots and lots and lots of teal, which means the big ducks are still north of us. Last weekend we saw more mallards than we've seen all year, probably 6 groups total (with fog limiting our view to about 200 yards), so they're coming. Will see how Saturday goes, but seeing 500 big ducks at fern ridge yesterday gives me hope that the teal have moved on and mallards have decided to come.
What to do? Move north
Or better yet, get DFW to start and end the season later. It never gets good (unless you count having to go to 10 different spots to have 10 good shoots of residents "good") until Thanksgiving.
