GPS Fishing Guide to PA
iOS Universal Sports
The GPS Fishing Guide to Pennsylvania is a GPS enabled app, designed for both offline and online use, providing outdoor enthusiasts with easy access to all of Pennsylvania's freshwater fishing.
Our custom map interface allows you to browse a complete, color coded stream and lake map of Pennsylvania displayed over your choice of USGS 7.5 minute topographic maps, satellite imagery or road maps. When cellular service is unavailable, internally cached USGS and fishing maps let you continue into the wilds, using you phone as a handheld GPS.
Almost 5000 predefined fishing destinations are included with detailed listings of the species you'll find, regulations that apply, and the seasons size and creel limits for every species.
A waypoint function allows you to store your own GPS enabled fishing destinations with just the touch on a map. You can enter and edit your own data or fishing logs and share you waypoints with your friends.
The "Go" button passes coordinates directly to your phone's navigation software giving you turn-by-turn directions to both predefined and your waypoint destinations. You can even touch any interesting location on the map to make a temporary waypoint and touch "Go". You are immediately on your way!
When in the field, a "Target" function displays your target location on the map and calculates its distance and compass bearing from your current location. This is a great tool when navigating in the wilderness or just calculating distance.
An advanced menu allows you to search for any river, lake or stream, or drill down using specific criteria such as fish species, fishing regulation, motor type and more. All results are listed in distance order from your current location allowing you to find the closest fishing no matter where you are.
BONUS - With the exception of our customized Pennsylvania fishing data, many features including USGS maps, waypoints and TouchNGo driving can be used throughout the United States. This is more than just a PA fishing app. Use it wherever you go!
For Trout Anglers - This GPS Fishing Guide lists "Approved - Stocked Trout Waters", "Erie Steelhead Waters", "Special Regulation Waters", "Class A Trout Waters" and "Wilderness Trout Waters." You can even "Search All Trout Waters" to find any trout stream by name.
For Bass Anglers - Target the "Big Bass Lakes" or search all rivers, lakes and streams holding Smallmouth, Largemouth, or Spotted Bass. No matter how you search, your results are always listed in distance order.
Target Other Species - You can narrow your search to find the hotspots for just about any species. Find Striped Bass, Muskie, Walleye, Pike, Pickerel, Shad, Channel Catfish, Crappies, Perch and more!
For Boaters - This GPS Fishing Guide is an ideal tool. Search for lakes based on the type and size motor on your boat. If you have a 20 horsepower motor, you can find those lakes where your boat is legal. You can even find the many public access boat launches on Pennsylvania's rivers and streams and get detailed information including the type of ramp, trailer parking available and more.
Make the most of every fishing outing with The GPS Fishing Guide to Pennsylvania!
