I used to bowfish carp on lake roosevelt, they made it illegal back in the 90's.  Other means of taking carp are legal, it specifies "bow and arrow fishing" so you could blowgun carp.

The NPS made the ruling not WDFW

My understanding is they outlawed it because "people" were complaining about carp carcasses laying all over the banks.

It is on page 92 of the new regs.

I used to bowfish too. The NPS is a thorn for everyone who lives in this whole area!
