Ice Fishing

Sunday, January 23, 2022

2:00pm – 4:00pm

Meet at the large shelter on the north side of Terra Lake.
 Join us at Terra Park for this fun and interactive event designed for individuals age 10 and older. Participants will learn about basic ice fishing equipment, safety and regulations and go fishing. If you have your own equipment, please bring it with you.

Very limited equipment will be available (first come first serve) or bring a pop bottle and make your own ice fishing rig. We will provide basic terminal tackle (hooks, bobbers), depth finders, ice skimmers and bait. We will also drill holes.
If you are age 16 and older, you must have an Iowa Fishing License. Event registration is required.

How you can prepare:

  • Check out the ice fishing "how to" information at the FirstCatchCenterIowa website
  • Bring your own ice fishing pole, or a pop bottle to make an ice fishing rig.
  • Dress WARMLY. Insulated boots and warm gloves in addition to warm coats and hats are a must.
  • Bring a bucket, chair or stool to sit on.

Follow the event on Facebook. Event may be cancelled if ice conditions are not safe, or in case of severe weather (extreme temperature, winter storms, etc.)

The First Catch Center is based out of the City of Johnston's Parks and Recreation Department. It is focused on helping beginning and casual anglers become more successful while promoting outdoor fun for everyone. The program is a collaborative effort of Johnston Parks and Recreation, The Iowa DNR Fish Iowa! program, the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and other entities in central Iowa.
