Crowsnest River

The Crow…it’s as simple as that!

The Crowsnest River is a classic Rainbow Trout river located along the contintenal divide in SW Alberta, only a 45 minute drive from Fernie. Meandering through the eastern foothills of the Canadian Rockies, the Crowsnest River is a small walk n’ wade stream full of healthy & wise rainbows reaching the 20+ inch range. As most call it “the Crow”, this quaint river has over 1500 trout per mile and quite the reputation for hosting remarkable hatches. This river is crossable in most sections and is known for fast riffles, pools and sight fishing for big fish along high banks. Rich in history and scenery the Crow offers ample opportunity for the angler seeking the challenge of mastering the fine art of deception and presentation.
