SIDNEY, Neb. — Cabela’s outdoor outfitter store announced Friday the participating waters for Wanna Go Fishing for Millions?, a contest giving anglers a shot at up to $2 million in cash and more than $225,000 in additional prizes by catching tagged fish in select lakes across the United States.

Lake Tahoe is the only body of water in Nevada on the list.

One of the tagged fish could be worth up to $1 million. The grand prize will be doubled up to $2 million if the grand prize winner is a current user of the Cabela’s Fish Recon app or downloaded the Cabela’s Fish Recon app to their smartphone.

Registration began April 19 and participants must pre-register before fishing. Winners of specific prizes will be announced after the promotion ends July 8.
