Experience a new way to fish

Awesome product. I’ve always purchased expensive laminated maps in fly shops when floating new rivers. Now all the information is in one, easy to access location that is constantly updated updated with current river conditions. Especially useful when floating a new river to see exactly how many miles to your take out. No more second guessing where we are when I could be focusing on the fish!
As someone who generally doesn’t love the use of too much technology when it comes to fly fishing, I was skeptical about downloading OnWater. I was pleasantly suprised with both how helpful and how easy-to-use the app is. From private location logs that allow you to record your personal fishing data without exposing any details to others, to the ability to download offline maps so you can always feel confident in remote locations, OnWater is a useful tool to help you fully enjoy every day out on the water.
This app has it all for us anglers rafters that need quick access to public vs private land/ boat ramps when planning our next fishing trip. Also really important info like guide shops, gauges, and licensing needs. It’s also great for when I get to a new river that unexpectedly has bad conditions so I whip the app out and look out for nearby public access elsewhere!
