The Oldman Chapter Trout Unlimited Canada has been registered as a society in Alberta since 2000. We consider the Oldman River drainage, from the headwaters of the Oldman, Crowsnest, Castle, Waterton, Belly and St. Mary Rivers, as fish habitat worth watching.
Our chapter is largely project driven – we like to be able to respond to needs on and along the waterways, within our abilities and means and with the help of others with similar interests.
We meet as a chapter as needed to discuss projects, fisheries and water-related concerns.
Our Annual General Meeting is early in the year, usually by the end of March.
