Celebrate a child’s first fish

Preserve the memory of a child or grandchild hooking their first fish this summer with a special certificate. Print the certificate from an electronic file posted online or request a printed certificate from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Apply for a first fish certificate online at www.iowadnr.gov/firstfish. It’s easy and free to participate. There are no size, species or age requirements - only that it is the very first fish the angler has successfully landed.

Family and friends can join in on the celebration by viewing the first catch photos of their kids and other budding anglers on the First Fish webpage once the entry is approved.

Give kids a lifetime of big memories out on the water this summer. Follow the simple tips for taking kids fishing on the Iowa DNR website at fishing.iowadnr.gov to help keep the experience fun and positive for the whole family.
