Find a new favorite fishing spot or plan the perfect trip with two all-new interactive map layers. Get up-to-date streamflow and water temperature information from the new USGS Streamflow map. And, be one of the first to test the brand new Gaia Fishing Map with boat access information and known fish species for select waterways in Montana and Oklahoma.
The USGS Streamflow and Gaia Fishing maps supplement an expanding catalog of fishing-specific map sources that includes National Geographic fishing maps for Colorado.
This layer allows you to overlay Stream Gage status icons on any map source and offers complete coverage of the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii.
Gage icons indicate current river flow status — above normal, normal, below normal, and unknown. Tap the icons to get information such as Gage ID, flow rate in cubic feet per second, water temperature, gage height, and river status based on historical averages when available.
Gage information comes directly from the USGS and gets updated every 6 hours. View the USGS Streamflow overlay when connected to the internet.
The new Gaia Fishing overlay offers data sourced by Gaia GPS team members from their local states. Coverage is currently available in Montana and Oklahoma. Similar to the USGS Streamflow map, this layer is interactive, and you can tap icons to get more information.
The map also features:
- Fishing access points, boat ramps, marinas
- Known fish species where available
- Fish habitat/brush pile locations
- Bathymetric lines where available
- Labels for lakes, rivers, streams, and small bodies of water
- Montana fishing license dealer locations
You can layer both USGS Streamflow and Gaia Fishing on top of any map source – and take advantage of iOS Dark Mode by layering with the new Gaia Topo.
How to Use These Maps
These new layers come with a Premium Membership. To add these layers to your maps, open the Gaia GPS app or website, tap the layers icon, and select “Add map layers.” Go to “Nautical/Aviation” and select the new map source. Also, make sure you’ve enabled the new Gaia Topo to utilize these maps.
