Bowfishing Kentucky’s Cypress Swamps

You don’t have to travel to Louisiana or any other place in the deep south to fish and kayak cypress swamps.

If you head to western Kentucky and the area of the Clarks River National Wildlife Refuge, you’ll encounter some ideal conditions.

Join Tim Farmer, host of Kentucky Afield, as he heads into the swamps of western Kentucky to do a little bowfishing for an invasive species. Tim jumps in his kayak, grabs his bow, and relaxes in the beautiful Cypress swamps.

Most people have no idea how close they are to an area this pristine and beautiful.

Information about this area can be easily found on the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
