Lake Roosevelt??
« on: May 27, 2013, 08:45:00 PM »
Has anyone ever bow fished lake roosevelt? Is it legal? I have never done it but I think it would be a blast on that lake. Anyone know if its legal?

Scott (Stickers),

Your question relies upon the implication that WDFW has a thought process!

I'm sure there is something.....I hope this is one of the restrictions that we can see lifted if we are able to organize bowfishers in this state. Most of the time restrictions are made without a challlenging voice. I think we need to dig into this one.

I think it has to do with grass carp. They dont want us killing carp since the grass carp keep the aquatic vegetation down.  I could be wrong.

Grass carp are illegal to shoot state wide. Coukd be though if they think there's an abundance of them and they coukd be accidentally shot.

I can find it for the northern most section of the sanpoil but nothing about Roosevelt. If I don't hear anything here in the next day or two I will call the department.

I usually go to Long Lake for carp, (watched a guy wack em pretty good this weekend) would have never thought to even check for Roosevelt.  Might have saved myself a ticket over the years by not wanting to drive for carp.  Things that make you go  :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Made a mad dash to Clarks, had what I needed.

Ended up with a Zebco 808 reel, had my own arrows already but the old spool got bent.

Swapped out my QAD fall away for a WB lol never thought I'd be doing that.

It's an old backup bow, turned it down to 45lb draw

Must be too early, checked 3 sloughs and only bumped 1 fish, may have been a big pike I dunno, I just seen the swirl from from taking off.

No trails in tbe grass yet, no beds or tore up grass floating, I think they may be cruising tbe banks, but haven't moved into the grass flats yet.

Soon!

Grass carp can be shot in Duck Lake in Ocean Shores , Grays Harbor Co. ( No min. size. No daily limit. May also be taken by bow and arrow) Mentioned in regulations for the lake. Not sure why the exemption, they were put in the lake to eat the grasses several years ago and this summer they are chemically treating parts of the lake to kill off some grasses.

We have a place on Roosevelt and we see carp in the shallows of the small bays all the time that are friggin' enormous.  Some of them appear to be larger than the wave runners we're riding sometimes!  :yike:

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset
