What is Whacking Fatties? Fishing reports and forecasts for ~10,000 streams and lakes and rivers across North America and the United Kingdom.

How is the Fatty Factor calculated?

The Fatty Factor is calculated using a 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 is the Fatty Factor rated?

5 stars is the best while 0 stars is “Not Fatty”.

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. Purple points represent bridges or stream crossings whereby often Google StreetView is available. Red points represent USGS Stream Gauges. 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.

With the goal of better understanding fly-fishing patterns and predicting location and ferocity of fishable events, Whacking Fatties presents the Fatty Factor: a fly-fishing success estimation model using proprietary big data analytics.

Whacking Fatties promotes responsible fishing via catch and release practice and water resources conservation.
