The Crowsnest River meanders through its valley west of Coleman, Alberta, in April 2014.

The Crowsnest River is a tributary to the Oldman River in southern Alberta, Canada. It begins at the summit of the Crowsnest Pass and meanders eastward through the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass and the Frank Slide, eventually joining the Oldman River Reservoir upstream of the Oldman River Dam.

The Crowsnest River is a highly productive river with a substantial insect population that fuels a world-class sport fishery for rainbow trout, westslope cutthroat trout, bull trout, hybrid trout ("cutbow" cutthroat & rainbow trout crosses), brown trout (below Lundbreck Falls), mountain whitefish, and various species of suckers.
