JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) now offers enhanced versions of its fishing and fall color free applications for smart phones and other mobile devices.

MDC’s “Find MO Fish” free app provides a map of Missouri with locations of MDC public boat ramps for major lakes, rivers and streams of Missouri. The map also shows exact locations of MDC underwater fish structures, which serve as habitat for fish. With the geo-location feature, anglers can guide their boats right up to their favorite fish attractors and start fishing.

The app now includes a Best Bets feature for certain fish species. When a user clicks on a fish in the Fish Guide section of the app, a Best Bets button will appear if any areas have been chosen by MDC staff or other anglers as good places to catch that fish. By clicking the Best Bets button, anglers can view a list of areas and read the latest weekly fishing report or annual fishing prospects report for the areas.

MDC’s “MO Fall Color” app provides users with up-to-the-minute fall-color scenes from places near them and around the state, complete with GPS navigation information. The app also provides weekly fall-color reports for various areas of the state. Users can even add their own fall-color photos and share them with Facebook friends and others. The MO Fall Color app will become active during fall-color changes beginning in September through November.
