The key is to put a call to \thispagestyle at some point after
\chapter, but still on the first page of the chapter:

\begin{document}
\pagestyle{fancy}

\chapter{Chapter the First}

Here is some incredibly informative text, for which I will get a PhD.
\thispagestyle{fancy}
This is more text on the first page.

\end{document}
