The Bowsman River originates in the Porcupine Mountains and meanders south-east through the escarpment until it eventually flows into the Woody River. Angling opportunities exist primarily in the middle and upper reaches of the escarpment. The Bowsman River is primarily stocked with brook trout.
There are a few access points along the Bowsman River. See the Bowsman River Fishing Package under downloads for a summary on angling opportunities in the river.
