The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is launching a new digital passport modeled after the successful State Park Passport created in 2020 to mark the 100th anniversary of Iowa State Parks

Davenport, IOWA – According to the Iowa DNR officials, the new Hook n’ Paddle Passport encourages people to explore easy and safe paddling spots, catch fish, stay active and get up close with nature this summer.

Starting June 1, Iowans can sign up online and win prizes for checking in to one or more of 50 easy local fishing and paddling locations across Iowa.

The more locations visited, the more prizes available.

State officials said that the prizes include:

  • The first 500 people to check into three locations will win an exclusive Hook n’ Paddle Passport sticker.
  • The first 100 people to check into 10 locations will win a stocked mini tackle box.
  • Every check-in is an entry into monthly (June-August) and end of season sweepstakes with a grand prize of a kayak, paddle, life jacket and dry bag.
