ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There’s a special fishing event this holiday weekend.

Five large trout have been put into state waters and have been tagged for cash prizes totaling $1,000.

Anglers can redeem the numbered tags from the fish for $200 at the nearest Chamber of Commerce.

The event started Thursday and ends when all the fish have been caught and prizes claimed.

Follow the Department of Game and Fish and the Tourism Department on Facebook, to receive clues about the location of the fish.
