Cast For Cash at the Second Annual Lake Wallenpaupack Fishing Contest


Hawley, Pa., May 4, 2015 – The Lake Wallenpaupack Watershed Management District and Pocono Mountains Visitor’s Bureau announce the second annual Cast for Cash fishing contest on Lake Wallenpaupack. The contest runs May 1st, 2015 through September 30th, 2015.


This free contest is designed to promote the work done by the Watershed District to protect and improve clean water in Lake Wallenpaupack. Clean water brings about the opportunity to have fun, enjoy recreational activities and catch big fish. This summer, the big fish could also bring anglers some big prizes. There are 80 fish of varying sizes and species tagged and released into Lake Wallenpaupack at various locations. Registered participants can win prizes valued from $100 – $5,000. There will also be sweepstakes drawings in June, July and August allowing more chances to win, even for those who don’t fish.


You must be pre-registered to participate. For registration information, official rules and regulations and a list of this year’s prizes visit
