Fishing the Oldman and Sheep Rivers in Alberta Puts You Deep in Classic Trout Country

Fishing the Oldman and Sheep Rivers in Alberta gets you onto some amazing fish, with great public land access to define a western fishing classic.

With great public access, along forest roads and trails, fishing the Oldman and Sheep Rivers is a fly angler’s dream come true.

Flowing out of the Rockies into the flat lands of southwestern Alberta, these rivers provide unrivaled access along significant sections in the foothills.

A bit more of an unknown gem when compared to other more famous rivers such as the Bow, there are many opportunities for free public land camping and access on logging roads. Used primarily by resident anglers “in the know” you can also take advantage of the great fishing, not too mention the low Canadian dollar.

Plan a classic western fly fishing experience this summer and visit the hill country of Alberta to explore the Oldman and Sheep Rivers.
