The Nebraska-based retailer is sponsoring “Wanna Go Fishing for Millions,” which offers anglers the chance to win cash prizes for catching specially-tagged fish in 67 lakes across 19 states, including five lakes in Arizona – Lake Pleasant, Roosevelt Lake, Lake Mead, Lake Powell and Patagonia Lake.
“The company approached us for permits to hold this competition,” said Fisheries Chief Kirk Young. “We reviewed their plans and eagerly said ‘yes’ to this effort to encourage fishing participation.”
Tagged fish that are legally caught by anglers are eligible for prizes in the contest. Complete contest details are available at http://www.cabelas.com/fishformillions
The contest runs through Thursday, July 14.
Whether you win in the “Wanna Go Fishing for Millions” contest or not, the Arizona Game and Fish Department encourages everyone to get out and enjoy this state’s diverse fishing opportunities this spring and summer.
“This is shaping up to be an excellent year for fishing in Arizona, with some record-size fish being caught,” Young said. “Now is a great time to get out and catch some memories.”
