Iowa Kids Fishing Photos

Youth, fish and smiles in IA.

Taking kids fishing

There is nothing better than the smile on a kid while they are holding up their prize catch. We encourage you to take a kid fishing in Iowa. Take a picture of their catch and let us post it here. They don't have to be trophy fish, trophy smiles are what it's all about.

See ideas for taking kids fishing on nearby, local waters.
