The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is recruiting Iowans to accept the mission to take someone fishing. Share your love of fishing with a kid, your best friend, a spouse or your parents.

Take a group shot of you and the person(s) you took fishing and enter it in the 2017 #MissionFishin Photo Contest. Show us the fish you caught or just having a great time out on the water. Set the post to “public” on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, and tag it with #MissionFishin and @iowadnr or upload the photo to the DNR website.

The DNR will pick its three favorite photos from those tagged or uploaded. Entry deadline is midnight on June 23, 2017. Winners will be notified by private message in your social media account, or by email if you uploaded a photo to the DNR website.
