CO Wild Trout maps more than 1,300 locations in Colorado for native cutthroat and wild trout, and converts your compatible iPhone or iPad into a robust mapping GPS* you can take into the field. Shows every stream and lake in the state known to support a cutthroat population, often with details about abundance, habitat quality, and genetic purity. Data is consolidated from a variety of sources, in particular the range-wide status reports for Rio Grande, Greenback, and Colorado River Cutthroats funded under the Endangered Species Act. Additional data comes from federal, state, and other authoritative sources, integrated into an easy-to-use and powerful map-centered application.

This includes iPhone 4S, 5, 5c, 5S, and 6, plus recent iPads equipped for cellular data reception (iPad 2, Mini, Retina, Air, and Mini with retina display). Note that WiFi-only iPads do not currently support GPS operation, although all other features of the app are supported. These devices do support wi-fi based location services, so route finding may work while you are connected to a wifi network.
