The 2012 "Wanna' Go Fishing for Millions?" contest runs until July 8.
Utah is one of 19 states that are holding a "Wanna' Go Fishing for Millions?" contest this year. The contest is sponsored by Cabela's.
If you catch a fish with a contest tag on it, you'll be eligible for some big prizes.
The fish were tagged by biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources. "We're happy to help," says Roger Wilson, Aquatic Section chief for the DWR. "We wish the anglers who participate in this contest the best of luck. We hope you're one of the prize winners."
The following are Utah lakes and reservoirs with tagged fish and species of tagged fish:
To qualify to win, you must pre-register online.
In one of the 19 states, a fish has been tagged with a tag worth $1 million. The grand prize will be doubled to $2 million if the person who catches the fish had Cabela's Fish Recon app on his or her smartphone before they caught the fish.
Other prizes include two Ranger 520Z Bass Series Comanche boats and trailers with Evinrude outboard motors, valued at $65,000 each, as well as more than $20,000 in gear from Costa sunglasses, Abu Garcia and Rapala.
All rules and requirements, as well as contest details and registration information, are available at cabelas.com/fishformillions.
