JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri anglers can now get high-tech help locating fishing spots with the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Find MO Fish mobile application for smart phones, tablets and other mobile communication devices. MDC developed the mobile app with Timmons Group (timmonsgis.com), a national leader in innovative geospatial solutions.

Using the Find MO Fish application, users can view location maps of Missouri’s major lakes, rivers and streams. The application also generates fast and accurate driving directions to numerous MDC boat ramps across the state. The application also allows users to find exact locations of underwater fish structures and guide their boats to their favorite fish attractors.

Find MO Fish is available as a free download on the Google Play Store and Apple iStore. Multiple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets are supported by the application. Download the application for iOS devices at http://tinyurl.com/brma6ef or Android devices at http://tinyurl.com/csxgglc.

“MDC wanted to be able to use map data we already had available in this mobile application,” says MDC Information Management Manager Kirk Keller. “Timmons Group worked with us to develop an application that dynamically pulls this map data as we update it. This approach allows us to efficiently use taxpayer dollars to provide mobile services to the public. This new technology is another way conservation makes Missouri a great place to fish.”
