The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is offering a free fishing app that makes it easier for enthusiastic anglers to go about ensuring that they don't break any local laws or regulations when they embark on fishing trips.

Fishing-related regulations can be complicated and difficult to understand, as they tend to include elements of conservation as well as industrial concerns. But the free 'Fish Washington' app aims to simplify everything, by using interactive maps to help anglers find legal fishing spots in their area. The app also offers information on fishing limits and what kind of gear can be used in a specific water body. The app is also designed to download updates and offer them offline, which is critical when you consider the environments that people fish in.

Ultimately, this fishing app empowers anglers with the knowledge they need to enjoy their hobby without running afoul of the law, while the app benefits the local environment by ensuring that the ecosystem is not unduly disturbed.
