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.
