Sports & Recreation


The Fishing Club at Iowa State University looks to engage with students and the community who enjoy fishing. We are a diverse group of avid fishermen who enjoy targeting many species. Aside from monthly meetings, we spend time fishing the local area, learning how to target different bodies of water, and taking trips to popular lakes and rivers to catch various fish species. The Fishing Club provides online tournaments for members who wish to get out and fish on their own while having the chance to win prizes. Throughout the winter, members ice fish together and go up north for fly fishing, along with attending conferences. We are associated with MLF and BASS, two major league bass fishing organizations. Some members participate in tournaments through these organizations. The Fishing Club also partners with local businesses to educate the public about fishing, and we have a wide range of sponsors to which each member has access to discounts on fishing gear.
