your not the first to call me that, and you probably wont be the last. theres not a lot of tips one can give on archery fishing. you find some carp and shoot at them. i guess the only advice is, practice!!

What did i call you?

At Chinook landing the little slough there gets filled to the brim with carp in about 2 months. :) But I'm not sure if its legal to shoot there...
But I'm pretty sure it would be legal to shoot the carp at Rooster Rock. It gets filled up with them at the little pipe that goes into the columbia from the lake there.
Good luck!

Even as a notorious carp guy, I have no problem with guys that shoot carp with bows as long as they follow two simple items.

One, don't toss dead fish on the bank or in the water. It really sucks to walk up on a stack of bow killed carp with flies buzzing around when out for a day on the water. Take the fish with you to eat (a lot of people eat carp) or use as fertilizer or something but don't leave em around to make other people's day less pleasant.

Two, don't call it fishing. It isn't.

That said, carp are invasive and the population isn't going to suffer from some arrows.

the only way i would take them with me is if there was a bounty. otherwise there goin in the bushes. i have thrown plenty in the bushes, and ive never stumbled upon a pile of dead fish with flies all around them. maybe i dont fish in the carp areas like you do
