Falcon Lake Tagged fish contest
In 2017 brought the excitement of the Winter Fish-Off to the summer time by adding 6 tagged fish into Falcon Lake worth a total of $10,000. Imagine, every time you set the hook on Falcon Lake this summer you might have thousands of dollars on the end of the line!
In 2018 we're making it bigger! On top of the 5 tagged fish still left from 2017 worth a total of $9,000.00. We've added 3 more pike and 3 more bass worth $1000 each! that's $16,000 worth of tagged fish released into Falcon Lake! Since 2 have been caught and paid out now, that leaves $14,000 left swimming around in Falcon right now?
Anyone can participate. Just buy your ticket for $20 at any of our local retailers and you'll have a chance of winning thousands of dollars for catching a fish!
Kids (15 and under) are automatically entered if they're fishing with an adult with a Tagged Fish Ticket!
