HOW IT WORKS:
Prior to the start of the Fishing Period, the Sponsors will stock 100 tagged Rainbow Trout into Rockport Reservoir, each tag will have a unique number. 10 tag numbers will be randomly selected and correspond to 10 larger prizes including the large cash prize. The remaining 90 tags will not correspond to any specific prize. An angler catching one of the tagged trout that corresponds to one of the large prizes will give the tag to a Rockport staff member but WILL NOT be notified of what prize they have won until the end of the contest. NO ONE, including all staff members, will know what the tag corresponds to until the end of the contest. The remaining 90 tags will not correspond to any specific prize but anglers catching one of these 90 tags will be able to choose a prize including fishing rods, golf packages, yurt rentals, etc. the day they turn the tag in to Rockport staff.
No prizes will be awarded to any participant presenting a tagged fish that has been caught other than during the Fishing Period. Tags must be presented to a staff member of Rockport State Park during the fishing period. All tagged fish must be caught in accordance with all state and local laws, codes, rules and regulations.
