It is legal, recommend you check out the fish and boat Commission website for laws and rules.

you would think Kevin, and that is the answer I have gotten off of PFBC WCO's.
But PGC WCO"S who I have asked have been split on their answers. Curious as to what John thinks.
Much of Canonsburg Lake is within safety zones. It is loaded with carp.

I've shot a bunch of carp in Canonsburg Lake. Go behind Waterdam Plaza in the early summer and they'll be stacked on top of each other in the shallows.

Safety zones would not apply because you would be fishing and under the constraints of a fishing license, not hunting, under a hunting license. The activity is called "bow fishing" not carp hunting.
