Fishing with the Fox contest location for 2023
by Utah Division of Wildlife
This is a "Fishing with the Fox" contest location for 2023. Look for a red tag that reads "2023 DWR WIN" if you catch a fish at this reservoir. The contest runs May 22–Aug. 6, 2023. Eligible tag holders who have registered on the Eventbrite page will be automatically entered into the prize drawing, which will be held on Thursday, Aug. 10.
What to do if you catch a tagged fish: Tags can be registered and turned in for verification until August 6, 11:59 p.m. You must have possession of the physical red tag to win. You can catch and keep trout with the tag or choose to release any tagged trout you catch. If you choose catch-and-release fishing, please swiftly pull or clip the tag from the trout, then release it. Register for the contest (required) on our Eventbrite page and enter your contest registration information and tag number; once registered for the contest, you'll be prompted to print out or download the "tagged fish registration ticket," which must accompany all tags submitted. Turn in your registration ticket and the physical red tag for verification, which you can mail in to the DWR Vernal office or drop off at select Uintah Basin locations. See our Eventbrite for contest rules and details! Keep in mind that all Utah fishing rules and regulations apply throughout the contest, and anglers 12 and older must have a valid Utah fishing license. Applicable day-use fees — or your annual Utah State Parks Pass — are required for entry at Steinaker State Park . For more information contact Anthony Christianson or Tonya Kieffer-Selby at 435-781-9453. Thank you to participating sponsors: Basin Sports, Esquire RV, Mort's Car Wash, Red Mountain Cycle, Stewart's Marketplace/Ace Hardware, Strategic Diesel, The Fox 98.5 FM radio station and the Wildlife Conservation Foundation.
