Arizona HAWG Bass Or Fat Cat
Participate In The Arizona HAWG Bass Or Fat Cat challenges
December 1, 2020
Anglers are encouraged to participate in the Arizona HAWG Bass and Fat Cat challenges. These incentive-based, citizen-science conservation rewards programs are designed to encourage anglers to learn about and pursue large Bass or catfish while emphasizing immediate live release of individual fish that exceed a designated weight or length.
Goals of the program include conservation through catch-and-release of the largest, oldest fish; generation of excitement among anglers about Arizona fishing opportunities; collection of valuable information through citizen-science that can help inform Bass and catfish conservation efforts; and sharing of information about fishing opportunities and destinations to make fishing more enjoyable.
