Issuance of the waterfowl blind permit allows drawn applicants the ability to place a blind for more than 24 hours in an assigned area on the shoreline. The permit for designated areas will end Feb. 12, 2023 and all blinds must be removed by Feb. 26, 2023.
During the waterfowl season the lake levels will likely fluctuate and that could change conditions on the blind locations.
