Beta testers needed for mobile fish app

FISHING – Anglers are being asked to test out a new fishing app developed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The free mobile app’s official release is April 2018. The app is designed to give anglers up-to-date fishing regulations for every lake, river, stream and marine area in Washington, according to a WDFW news release.

WDFW has released a beta version that can be downloaded from the Apple App store or from Google Play. The agency wants angler input to help work out bugs and feedback on how the rules are displayed.
