A big day for local anglers as the Highwood and Sheep River's open for sportfishing for the year.

Both river's are open from Saturday, June 16 until the end of October, with the exception of one stretch on the Sheep, which closes at the end of August.

If you're looking to keep some fish for the table, the Sheep is your better bet, as you can keep a pair of either rainbow or cutthroat trout over 35 centimetres, while the Highwood is catch and release only.

Also no bait is allowed in either river.
