Experience a new way to fish

I have loved using this app. The distance calculator on the river is extremely valuable when floating sections I’m unfamiliar with. Also enjoy having the private and public land marked to make sure I’m not trespassing. I believe the app is providing maps and other information in a responsible way by keeping your own marked places and notes private to only you, and providing links to local fly shops and other local services who benefit from people using the app to contact them. I also appreciate their mission to support conservation efforts across the country. Keep up the good work onWater!
This app has everything you could want. Adding details to your photos makes it extremely easy to journal what was working in the exact conditions. The GPS features while you float make sure you never miss a takeout and make planning the day a breeze. The team always seems to be adding more rivers. Well worth the money if you spend a lot of days on the river.
This is by far the best fishing app i have. Compared to some fishing apps this tops it! With being able to see weather conditions, boat lunches, and even access points to your fishing grounds is super helpful. It came in handy when some friends and i wanted to go out, and being able to see weather conditions for the area was really nice in planning our best time to fish. Couldn't ask for a better app!
