During non-holiday calendar weeks, hunting waterfowl on the impoundment will be open only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Waterfowling will also be open on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and the Martin Luther King Jr. holidays. Also, the impoundment will open to waterfowlers on the opening and closing days of each season.
