The Shepards River is a 13.6-mile-long (21.9 km)[1] river in western Maine and eastern New Hampshire in the United States. It is part of the Saco River drainage basin.

The Shepards River rises in the town of Eaton, New Hampshire, among foothills of the White Mountains. The river flows northeast into Brownfield, Maine, passing the villages of West Brownfield, Brownfield, and East Brownfield before reaching the Saco River east of Frost Mountain.

Several species of game fish have been caught in Shepards River, including brook trout, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, and atlantic salmon.[2]
