Fish feed on a variety of organisms. Some are insects, some are not. However, insects comprise a major component of the diet of fresh water fishes. Some insects live on land and fall in the water by accident. Some live their entire lives in the water. There are some insects that spend part of their life in the water, mature, and leave for dry land. Here are some images of insects and other organisms that I have seen in and around places where we fish. Fish also eat plants, birds, mammals, lizards, snakes, crustaceans etc.
