Hunting at Somerville Lake
Click on the provided links for more information.
Somerville Lake offers two different opportunities for waterfowl hunting. The first is an area designated for daytime waterfowl hunting only ( map ). Temporary blinds are allowed, but each hunter must remove their blind before they leave. Public waterfowl hunting is allowed within the yellow markers, while no hunting can occur outside of the red markers. Hunter's must hunt from the shoreline. The second waterfowl hunting opportunity is hunting from a semi-permanent stand, constructed by the hunter, for the entire waterfowl hunting season ( map and gps coordinates ). The stands are assigned through a random duck blind drawing held annually (contact the Hunting Coordinator at the Somerville Lake Office ).
