Hunt Results for Lake Perris, Wednesday – 1/18/23

The waterfowl average take for the boat hunters at Lake Perris jumped upward quite a bit as compared to last Wednesday’s average. Mallards held on to the first spot for number of birds checked in with Gadwall and Widgeon tied for the second position. John Rowe of Lake Perris reported that the results for Wednesday, 1/18/23 were as follows:

7 hunters took home 5 Mallards, 3 Gadwall, 3 Widgeon, 2 Cinnamon Teal, and 2 Ruddy Ducks. No Geese were bagged in by the Lake Perris boat hunters. 2 Coots were also checked in at Perris on Wednesday. This worked out to an average bag of 2.14 ducks per hunter and, with the Coots included in the total, 2.43 waterfowl per person. Out of 9 reservations issued 3 boats showed up on time to claim their spot.

Lake Perris is open for waterfowl hunting every Wednesday until noon. Hunting is done from BOATS ONLY and the drawing for this season’s hunting spots has already occurred. There will be no “sweat line” or alternates on the day of the hunt. There will be (9) boat in buoy locations each Wednesday that will be awarded by lottery in early August.
