Thread: stream locator

  1. Default stream locator

    being a sophmore of a sort in fly fishing i've ventured off into streams and trying my luck with trout. a couple of the streams i knew most i didn't though. after doing some searching around i found that if i type in the county and state of choice it would come up with a home town locator with the streams. it doesn't give you roads and such on the map but it does give you some coordinates for gps. give it a try it might just suprise you with what you find out.

  2. Default Re: stream locator

    did some more playing around with this. a easier way to do it is to go to www.hometownlocator.com from there you can do a city or county search by state. after you do your search near the top of the page it will have the state and county next to it. it will appear like this: City Profiles > Texas Counties > Cities in Galveston > Galveston, Texas TX Community Profile click on the counties link. from there it will give you a list of counties. find your county for this i'll use galveston county. click on features and you'll get a page as follows: Galveston County, Texas Physical & Cultural Features
