Lake Cuyamaca is well known for its excellent duck hunting that includes; mallards, pintail and widgeon. The lake is open for hunting on Wednesday and Sunday during the season as set by State and Federal regulations.
The majority of birds do not arrive until after December 1 & so hunting is usually held off during the first half of the season. However, if fall rains and the arrival of enough ducks warrants the opening of the East Lake during the first half, they usually do so.
Management will initially place seven double blinds for the use of season members. Season members are accepted on a first come / first serve basis with payment of the $550 fee. Payment guarantees the member and a guest the use of the blind a minimum of six times during the season. Additional opportunities may develop if we get early rains and can open up the East Lake. Management will assign actual dates as soon as the season membership list is complete. A drawing will be held and dates and blinds will be assigned on a rotational basis. Register early as membership is limited.
