 New Mobile Web App Puts Fishing Information at Your Fingertips

 Its a nice weekend, and you want to go fishing. If you're new to fishing,
 or in an unfamiliar area, where should you go? If not everyone in your
 group has a license, where will you find the nearest place to purchase

 The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has released a mobile
 Fishing Guide web application that provides access to fishing locations,
 latest fish planting sites and fishing license sales locations. The web
 app, which is optimized for iPhone, Android and Blackberry smartphones,
 can be accessed by navigating to www.dfg.ca.gov/mobile.

 The new web app has three components:

 1. Fishing Guide: The core Fishing Guide component provides a listing and
 maps of more than 1,500 fishing locations across the state. This includes
 locations that are accessible by car as well as back-country sites.

 2. Fish Planting Schedule: Recently planted locations often provide
 excellent fishing opportunities. Anglers can now use their mobile phones
 to quickly find the latest fish planting sites in their area.

 3. Fishing Licenses: Use your mobile phone to find one of the more than
 1,600 locations around the state that sell fishing licenses.

 DFG's mobile Fishing Guide app was developed in collaboration with the
 Office of the State Chief Information Officer, in conjunction with the
 newly designed CA.gov portal. The Fishing Guide app can also be found by
 navigating to www.m.ca.gov  and clicking on Recreation and Leisure.

 Additionally, content on the newly designed home page at www.dfg.ca.gov
 has been reorganized with the two most common visitor types in mind. A
 section for anglers and hunters provides links to popular recreation
 pages such as regulations and license services. Another prominent section
 targets those needing scientific or conservation services and

 Web users are encouraged to comment on these new products, and DFG's
 website in general, at www.dfg.ca.gov/survey.
