Waterfowl brood surveys were conducted in the Pah River Flats, Alaska during July of 1993. Although spring flooding was extensive, duck production was greater than previous estimates from 1989. A large portion of the study area had burned in a lightning-caused wildfire in the summer of 1992. Some features of waterfowl production and aquatic vegetation in burned and unburned ponds were compared. A brief review of some effects of fire on waterfowl proposed in the literature is included.
