The North Raven River Conservation Site, located southwest of Red Deer, boasts excellent angling opportunities for brown trout and brook trout, as well as northern pike and mountain whitefish.

Once a popular drinking spot for thirsty cattle, the North Raven River had become a barren landscape due to excessive trampling. After much dedication such as in-stream habitat improvements, off-site cattle watering systems and cattle exclusion fencing, this stream has been restored. It is thriving because of continued conservation efforts including land purchases of important headwater springs and habitat protection leases with caring landowners.
