Utah is participating in a promotion sponsored by Cabelas. Fish have been tagged and released into waters in Utah and other states. If you preregister and then catch a tagged fish you could win up to $1,000,000 (or even double that amount).

Utah's DWR provided the information below. .

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 forĀ 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."
