Take Dad Fishing for Father's Day

As we honor dad this weekend, give dad something he will always treasure – quality time together. Take dad fishing and create memories that you can relive every time you’re together.

“Going fishing together is an easy way parents can connect with their kids without the interruptions from all our mobile technology,” said Joe Larscheid, chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau.  “Spending the day with our kids fishing and playing by the water, we can slow time down, if only for that moment, and create a memory that will last forever.”

Visit the Iowa DNR website at for tips on making the most of your fishing trip this Father’s Day including fishing reports, fishing maps and great places to fish close to home.
