Catch a memory when your favorite young angler hooks their first fish! When you catch your first fish the Iowa DNR would like to commemorate the event with a frameable certificate of your accomplishment. Species, size of the fish or age of the angler is irrelevant only that it be the first fish that the angler has successfully landed.
It’s easy and free to participate:
Apply for a First Fish Certificate or View/Search First Fish Entries
You can also download the First Fish Entry Form with details on how to enter.
Your child will receive a frameable certificate to commemorate this special event.
