Default Reports of lots of Carp at Clinton Spillway

I have heard a few reports of lots of asain, grass, and buffalos at the Clinton Spillway this past week. 1. Do you guys suspect these are shootable or are they still too deep? 2. I know there was a major discussion about the spillway last summer, is this considered a "legal" place to shoot? I plan to go fishing down there this next week anyways so i can take my bow in case, but it anyone else has been there a report would me great.

Thanks

Unless this has changed from years past, you can not get right up to the spillway to bowfish but have to be downstream so many hundred yards. Now if anyone has some form of written documentation stating otherwise, I will change my opinion but I know we were told this by DNR in the past.
