Kids under the age of 16 may fish Iowa waters without a fishing license in an attempt to make it easier for young people to be introduced to fishing. That’s the good news.
The bad news? A lot of youngsters never get the chance to fish because they don’t have an adult to take them fishing. Many youngsters are missing the chance to enjoy the outdoors and have a chance to watch a bobber go down and feel the tug of a fish pulling on the other end of the rod. In northwest Iowa, there is an organization doing its part to change that: The Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club (IGLFC).
