Fish and Boat Arizona
Don't let the desert climate fool you! Nearly a million anglers fish Arizona waters every year, resulting in a billion dollar industry. The Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) manages over 355,000 acres of reservoirs and close to 3,000 miles of rivers for 27 sport fish species . To help spread the message that Arizona is a great place to drop a line, the AZGFD GIS Program worked with fisheries biologists, PIOs and the boating program to develop Fish&BoatAZ, Arizona's newest boating and fishing guide. Using customized Esri configurable application code, anglers and boaters can now easily plan trips based on their own preferences, and refer to regulations from their mobile device while out on the water.
