    Default Lake Rules Change Request

    I was hoping there might be some lake experts who could tell me where to start with lake officials and requesting rule changes. I was able to get Lake Elsinore officials to permit Bowfishing for carp at Lake Elsinore but the city runs the lake. Peer is is run by the state so it's a lot different.

    I can't help, but while you're working on opening lakes to bow fishing, work on Skinner as well. It's loaded with them and you have clear water for sighting them.

    Big Bear is the only lake that I am familiar with that allows fishing with a bow.

    The only other lake I can think of that allows Bow hunting for Carp is Lake Henshaw.

    I have fished Perris many times, from boats and float tubing and honestly cannot remember seeing many carp in shallow water where you could get a shot at one. I'm sure it does occasionally happen, but I've been there in the springtime when carp usually spawn and chase each other in shallow water, making all kinds of commotion and splashes, and other than the big jumpers out in deeper water, I don't see hardly any carp that you could shoot.

    Carp are everywhere all the time in the shallows so very easy too shoot , never know if perris would allow bow hunting for them .. would be awesome if they did . back at full pool days you could walk the east end behind the trees and there was 100's rolling over each other all year long

    Start with calling the department of fish and wildlife that covers perris. My wife works at the one here but it doesn't cover perris. I know they issue permits for zpecial"hunting" activities on the golf course lakes maybe something like that could be issued to bow fish until a permanent change is made.

    I will start with F&W does your wife know what office covers Perris?

    Yes I have bowfished BB for many years.

    I will look at Skinner is it public or private?

    Also so you all know Bowfishing equipment is by California law fishing devices so all that one needs is a fishing license. Those that oppose it do so in ignorance of the sport, the safety records of lakes that allow it (many more people are injured fishing conventionally) and exactly how the sport works.

    I wonder if their reason for not allowing it is all the "yahoos" that would show up pulling Rambos with their bows taking out anything,and anybody in their path. Seems to be how things work around here. The responsible hunters, shooters, archers, and bow fisherman are left high and dry. How about bowfishing for carp ar DVL. Ive seen hundreds of those suckers lined up along the dam just laughing at me. But I would think no chance in hell at DVL.

    You're right Rod. The carp in DVL are gigantic! I hooked one on a senko one day and got freight trained until I had to put my thumb on the spool and break it off. It was heading into the trees and I didn't want to lose all of my new floro.
