How is the Fatty Factor calculated?

The Fatty Factor is calculated using a fly-fishing success estimation model containing proprietary big data analytics. We consume data from near and real-time sources, satellites, and sensors; compile/compare, against historic datasets, to create the Fatty Factor. Location, season, and analytics improve the rating over time.

How do I use the fishing maps?

We have a vast amount of geographic data for each stream. Click on the points to get more information. Green points represent fishing access such as put-ins and take-outs.

Where available, we have graphs for Predictive Hydrograph 7 days, Water Temperature, Observed Height (ft.) 7 days, Observed Discharge (cfs) 7 days, and Duration Hydrograph. The Duration Hydrograph is a graphical presentation of recent daily streamflow, plotted over the long-term statistics of streamflow for each day of the year.

Can I determine land ownership from the stream map?

What other mapping data is available and useful to anglers?

We provide three different background maps: dark, light, and satellite. The light is useful for planning routes to fishing access points. The satellite is very useful for all sorts of detailed planning.
