The water temp is still to low. I have seen a few in the shallows on the really warm days but it will be awhile before they really move in.

We are ready to quit shed hunting as soon as the fish move up. We went last year for the first time and we are now hooked.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Fish are actually quite active right now. We've shot a lot with good sized eggs and showing prespawn characteristics. This early shooting generally yields some of our biggest fish.  The hardest part about this time of year is finding clear water. With runoff and rainfall the Columbia/ Snake and Tribs get pretty dirty. Hit up the reservoirs. A group of us from the Washington Bowfishing Association will be at Potholes Saturday night for some fun shooting. Look us (Washington Bowfishing Association) up on Facebook to see the exact details for this Saturday all are welcome. It's going to be a blast.

We're actually having our first conservation event, in coordination with WDFW at the end of March. It might be the only time you can legally shoot a Grass Carp in the state of WA. Details on our website and facebook.

We had an awesome shoot Saturday Night. Although the Crab Creek area was a little dirty (they opened the canal to fill the reservoir) shooting was still very good for this time of year. We had 10 boats and most boats shot 25+ fish, for the 4 hours we were out.

It's surprising how many eggs were stuck to my boat :)

Cool. Im going to be lining up a bowfishing trip again this year for silver arrow bowmen... We went last year and had a blast.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Im Thinking of getting one of the large party spots at cascade park in moses to house everyone. we might make some day trips to Winchester or elsewhere but that just seems like a good place to gather everyone. Ive shot carp up by rocky ford creek area but is there decent carp shooting around cascade park?

We Washington Bowfishing Association) is actually hosting a tournament out of Cascade park May 30-31. There are lots of good sized fish in that lake. Plus you can hop into the dunes at potholes or, like you said, Winchester. Banks lake also has good numbers of fish too.
