Do you have a nearby water system? Like a tiny creek or something?
I'd get a spare tank, anything 1 gallon up. Collect some soil from the water and water insects. 10 gallons plus and you can add some minnows in as well. You can observe how the species interact. The great thing about this is that the tank will be 100% "cycled" due to tons of life in the soil. Not too scientific, yes.. I'd get some fish books that you understand.. Read and read and you can start moving onto more complex literature (you may know more than people your age by then- I took biology this year and everything but genetics was stuff I pretty much knew by heart- got a 95 in that class!)
Insects may not seem fish related but remember that everything is connected- you will have to know about fish the most, but you will need to know a lot about all other aquatic life as well.
