We have partnered with some of the top weather companies across North America, however not all locations or times can be captured. Due to the remote locations of where you may fish, we call for a calculated data set that fills in missing information through sophisticated modeling algorithms.  This is called "gap-filled data" and is highly dependent on the available network of weather stations in your area.  If you see missing information, it is likely due to a lack of data points that allow the gap-filled data to be calculated at that moment in time.  As a result, we see a missing value.  We will continue to look for solutions as FISHBUOY matures as a product.

As a rule of thumb, the United States Geologic Survey offers provisional data for water discharge, water levels, water turbidity and water temperature.  However, not all monitoring stations are equiped with temperature or turbidity probs.  In addition, Canada in general does not measure water temperature or turbidity.  However, there are some hints to better understanding water clarity.  HINT: For example, take a photo of your foot in water at approximately 1ft of depth.  Then 2ft of depth, then 3ft of depth.  As you take photos, FISHBUOY Mobile is recording water level and water discharge + a visual reference of the water clarity.  You can now refer to the water level and discharge as a personal gauge of water clarity when looking at your photo gallery.  While this approach is highly variable and many factors are not considered, it is a good way to correlated water level/discharge with water clarity in the absence of water turbidity monitoring.

FISHBUOY is a subscription-based solution that is dependent on some of your information.  In addition, as a service-based business, we require disclosure and acceptance of our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy before we can provide data access to our services.
