The recent Washington Bow Fishing Tournament on Potholes Reservoir drew 91 competitors, who eliminated about 20,000 pounds of carp from the reservoir and earned $7,800 in prize money. Chris and Cody Bird, from Oroville, Calif., took home the state championship trophies and $1,350 first-place prize money this year, with a grand total of 136 fish.

Mike Meseberg, owner of MarDon Resort on the reservoir, said removing carp benefits several gamefish species by preventing silting as carp kick up mud while bottom feeding. Silt covers and kills the spawn of such species as perch, crappie, bluegill and bass, Meseberg said.
