When you encounter a tagged fish, please cut off the tag(s), then write down the tag number, catch date, location and total length of the fish. Save the tag and other information, and call the division at 800-682-2632 or click here to report the tag. Those who return red tags to the division with the catch information will receive a $100 reward. Those returning yellow tags will receive a hat, $5 or other reward. All tag returns are also entered into a division end of year drawing.

Surprised that they want to tag cut off. Why not leave them on and just have us document the tag number?
Since they are giving out $$$, my guess is to keep from getting scammed. Especially with the red tags; I could see a group of friends playing "whose turn is it to catch it today?". Even if it is all legit, their budget is probably set at one reward per tag max.
