Nevada is in the midst of an extreme drought, and Stillwater NWR wetlands will receive less than 40% of normal water allotments. This means limited and less than ideal wildlife observation and waterfowl hunting opportunities from Fall 2014 through winter and into early Spring 2015.
The link below is a map showing projected status of refuge wetlands. Updates will be posted during the season as conditions change. The driving tour loop route for Foxtail Lake will be closed to all public access from October 10 until October 20, 2014 to lessen disturbance to migratory birds during the first week of waterfowl hunt season.
