It used to work great...

I was introduced to this app at a Fly Fishing Expo about a year and a half ago. I’ve introduced others too it as well. It was one of my favorite apps. Unfortunately, with one of the last updates something changed and I can’t open it on either of my two iPhones (6S and an iPhone 8) operating on the most updated operating systems. I would definitely subscribe to it, but now I can’t even open it.

Hopefully, this is something the developers figure out soon. Hopefully, I can start using this new version, someday.

Finally, an awesome map for Midwest streams! Get it!

Have had the app for about a year now. They now have offline maps, and have started to add other unique features and other states beyond Midwest. Well done, and very simple and easy to use. Use this app 9 times to 1 compared to Gaia (better for my uses) but thanks for the great app!

Good app, but why pay premium for public data?

It’s well put together, but this is ripping off the state data. I understand the overhead required to keep an app going like this, but it seems like the professional version is the same as the online Trout opportunities interactive mapper (WI DNR), which is free. I see why you should pay a premium for a platform, but you should not pay for public ally acquired data. Regardless of this, I still appreciate the app.

Developer Response ,

Very thoughtful review. Here’s our counter: We have much more than just “public data at the TROUT Opportunities mapper,” though Wisconsin has done a nice job with their website tools. For starters, we have a lot more comprehensive public land access data then the TROUT website. Take River Falls, Wisconsin for example. It’s important for anglers to know that in many towns and cities, there are public land at parks owned by counties and towns that provide great access (example here is Glen Park). This isn’t available or obvious in the TROUT website. Second, if you happen to venture outside of Wisconsin, the TROUT website is not of great use, and we have put a lot of work into integrating all states into one platform the same way we have done for Wisconsin. Third, we have things like campsites, parking locations, boat ramps, and other mapping data points of interest to anglers. Fourth, we have other important features of value to anglers that isn’t easily publicly available, including integrated real-time stream flow data, interactive elevation maps for every stream (mostly useful on the North Shore and out west), and more. Wisconsin has some great tools that are publicly available, but sometimes having it more accessible and all in one platform is of high value when your time on the water is limited.

Tight lines and thank you for the thoughtful review. -Zach
