Grab the kids, the gear, and enjoy the great outdoors during the Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) free fishing weekend June 5, 6 and 7th.
Free fishing weekend is a great time to take kids fishing. Outdoor fun awaits at hundreds of Iowa lakes, thousands of miles of rivers or a neighborhood pond. There are plenty of options to help you find a spot that is less crowded, so you can easily keep at least 6 feet of distance between you and other groups. If the parking lot is full when you get to a fishing spot, pick a new location or come back at a time that is not so busy like early morning or later at night. Check out the Iowa DNR’s interactive map to find a fishing spot near you!
