Anglers who catch a tagged fish are asked to return the tag or the tag number along with info on the date of capture, if the fish was kept or released, and the name and address of the angler to WVDNR, 2311 Ohio Ave, Parkersburg, WV 26101. Anglers also can call in the info at 304-420-4550 or provide the information via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each certificate has a choice of three prizes.
