PHOENIX– The Arizona Game and Fish Department hopes fishers and boaters will get hooked on their new app.

The department announced Monday that they had implemented an updated interactive online app, Fish & Boat AZ. The tool allows users to search for specific waters by name, area, fishing species and regulations, watercraft restrictions, accommodations and activities.

“This is a significant upgrade to the previous Fish & Boat AZ map,” Andy Clark, AZGFD statewide sportfish program manager, said in a press release Monday. “You’ll see it’s one of the most valuable resources any Arizona angler can have at their fingertips.”

Fishers and boaters are able to better filter their experience through Arizona’s seven fishing areas. The map currently features all major lakes and community fishing programs. There are plans to add information about Arizona streams by late 2019.

The department hopes users will take advantage of the app and programs they’ve put in place for the summer season, including their “Have a reel fun summer” campaign.

In the month of June, Arizona Game and Fish stocked extra fish at Lynx Lake, Dead Horse Ranch State Park, City and Santa Fe Reservoirs, Frances Short Pond, Scott Reservoir, Lower Lake Mary, Kaibab Lake, Woodland Reservoir, and Goldwater Lake.

Additionally, the department reminds individuals that they’re responsible for knowing which regulations apply to the body of water they choose to boat and fish at.

A valid fishing license is required for any person over the age of 10 taking fish or other aquatic wildlife from public waters, and all motorized watercraft must be registered.
