The Washington Bowfishing Association will be hosting its "Season Starter" this upcoming weekend (Saturday April 22nd) at Potholes Reservoir. If you enjoy bowfishing and want to see some of the latest gear and cool boats, this is the place. Entry is $30 per shooter. Information can be found on the Washington Bowfishing Association website under 2017 events.

Hope to see you all there.

Weather was good for the first half and the last hour. Our team had a pretty big lul for a couple hours, not sure how it went for everyone else. Pretty good turnout of people and fish.

42 teams showed up for the event, which is AWESOME!!!!! It was a good year of shooting. Fish seamed to be bigger this year compared to previous years. Big fish was 21+. 3 teams turned in fish 19lbs and higher. Most fish shot was 33.
Overall a great event. Next WBA event is the Washington State Bowfishing Championship, also held at Potholes.

Can you give any tips for a beginner? Shot my first carp in years the other day after wwok but really wanna take my little boat to potholes. I have a 14.5 sears gamefisher with a little shooting platform on the bow. Dont really know where to head at osullivan tho... Are the reeds a good place to start during the day?

I always have good luck pushing up into Frenchman's Wasteway - you'll usually find some carp cruising the lower end of the wasteway where it dumps into the lake. If you can make it to Winchester, the falls are always a good bet for some fast shooting since you can sometimes find hundreds in the pool below the falls during the spawn. Also just work the shoreline on the west side of the lake once you leave the state park - you'll see and hear the carp in the willows. So long as the wind doesn't pick up and you stay close to shore in the sheltered areas, you'll be good to go in your boat. Good luck!
