MAYFLOWER — The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is doubling down on its “Cash In on Conway” fishing promotion, increasing the prize money for each tagged fish from $500 to $1,000.
The AGFC released 55 fish of all sizes in July outfitted with neon yellow tags. Any angler who catches a tagged fish can visit www.agfc.com/lakeconway and submit the tag’s unique serial number by Oct. 31 to claim their prize.
“We’ve only had two reward tags turned in so far,” AGFC Education Chief Tabbi Kinion said. “With roughly one month to go in the promotion and the water level dropping, we wanted to do everything we can to get people out to enjoy Lake Conway before the renovation begins.”
