My “go to” Fishing App

I’ve consistently used River Data for the last 8 years. I’ve tried many, but this app provides all the essential information around CFS, water temperatures, gauge height and turbidity. I literally do not head out on the water without checking the River Data first.

The information in this app have transformed the way I fish, the rivers I choose on any given day and how I plan before venturing out. Thank you River Data for providing a vital source of information to maximize my fishing experiences!!

Useful app

With the ability to create favorites, Riverdata makes it easy to re-visit the rivers you want to track. It shows all USGS measures at each location (sometimes that's only the depth). I'd give it 5 stars but it has recently lost the ability to show any time span other than the default 7 days. It used to be able to show any number between 1-119 days. When that is fixed, I'll add the fifth star.

Update: The developer said the problem was with USGS, contacted them, and reported back that the issue was resolved--and it was. All in one day, so 5 stars.

Paddling Scout ,

A must have for Paddlers!

Great app for easily dialing in on the river and closest gauge to where you'll be going on the water. Quick scrolling between date ranges for historical data up to 120 days. Both CFS and gauge height graphs with links to maps and driving directions.
Delivers what it says and very much worth the price.
You can also build a list of favorites by just tapping a star on the upper right when you're checking out a river! Great feature.
Responsive tech support that actually gets back to you if you have questions.
5 Stars!!!
