August Bowfishing
« on: August 03, 2015, 03:38:17 PM »
I am wanting to take my grandson ( 9yo) out to try shooting some carp.  Is it too warm for bowfishing in eastern wa this time of year.  I have shot at Potholes in early June but never this late into the summer. 
We are traveling to Idaho this weekend, probably across I90, and I thought a stop to do some bowfishing would really round out the trip.

Any ideas?

Sorry, a little late considering you are probably already traveling but I would suggest south end of Moses Lake based off water clarity.  Potholes will be murky as well as the northern end of the lake.

Roosevelt is closed to the use of all weapons because it is controlled by the feds. I believe it's classified as a National Monument???
