Two smartphone mobile apps available on the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website make it easier for anglers to find a place to fish in the state. The apps provide access to more than 200 lake contour maps, providing yet another tool in the angler’s tacklebox.
One option, called ArcGIS Explorer, requires cellular service to work in the field. Anglers also can download the Avenza Geospatial PDF app on their mobile device before leaving home – a good option, considering cellular service is iffy, at best, on about 30% of North Dakota’s fishing waters.
Both apps provide interactive functionality and work with a phone’s GPS.
