The Village Fishing Challenge is open to members, sponsored guests, and eligible employees of the Hot Springs Village Property Owners’ Association (HSVPOA).
An Arkansas Game & Fish Commission fishing license is required for all participants ages 16 and older. Each entry fee must be paid at least 12 hours prior to capturing an eligible fish. The tag must be present in the fish at the time of presentation. No cash prize will be awarded to any participant presenting a tagged fish that has been caught at a time outside the scheduled fishing period. Tags must be presented within the fishing period to be redeemed.
Fish have been tagged in Lakes DeSoto, Cortez, Coronado and Balboa. All tagged fish must be caught in accordance with all state and local laws, HSVPOA Policies, codes, rules, and regulations. The fishing period will begin at 12:01am on July 4, 2020 and will end at 11:59pm on September 27, 2020. Participants that capture a tagged fish during those times are to call the number on the tag. Participants may be required to take the captured fish to one of the HSV Fire Stations for verification.
