Welcome to FLIPPR

FLIPPR is a grassroots volunteer group of Parkland residents, municipalities and business partners whose vision is to create a world class still-water trout fishery for economic and recreational opportunities in the Manitoba Parkland Region. Our goal in the words of our first chairman Robert Sopuck is to develop a necklace of lakes along the west and southern boundaries of Riding Mountain National Park.

From the Chair - November 2016

The Municipality of Harrison Park, along with FLIPPR, has passed a resolution to not turn on the Pybus Lake aeration this winter, due to the pike and yellow perch that have overtaken the lake.  FLIPPR and crew attempted to remove and repurpose as many trout as possible. FLIPPR will continue to assess the fish population in 2017 prior to bringing Pybus Lake back online.

Thanks to some giving supporters in 2016, the Municipality of Roblin's Trout Fisheries Trust Account has a few unassigned bucks in it!
The Municipality of Roblin is wondering what kind of things visitors might like to see improved upon at either Twin, Persse, Tees, East Goose or West Goose. For any recommendations, please keep in mind that:
1) Spear, Patterson, Tokaryk, Corstorphine and Antons is not in their municipal jurisdiction.
2) East Goose Campground and Washroom redevelopment is already an identified priority.
3) That there is a few dollars available, not an endless amount of cash. So the simpler the recommendation the better.

Neil LongbottomMore of those trout signs you guys keep getting made, or more stuff like that. Its unique and cool to see these things when you get to the Trout Triangle (Twin/Tee/Persse).

Brandon NovakowskiIs clearing a bit more parking space at Twin viable? Even an extra 200 sqaure feet or so on the south east side of the parking area would help a lot. All it takes right now is one inconsiderate park job to put the lot in disarray and make launching more trouble than it is worth.

Peter BarryI understand Tees lake either already does or will have some camping? I second the Twin parking area. It does get pretty congested pretty quickly.

Parkland Trout FisheriesTwins' parking lot isn't an easy fix. Some of you may recall that a few years ago Twins' parking lot was quite a muddy mess. To get it to where it is today took about three years and many, many, truck loads of gravel before it stopped sinking to Ghina. The area south of the parking lot is a swamp...but, if there's enough requests and support, I'm sure Roblin will respond well.

Ryan GinterI one thing that I've seen a major increase the last few years the amount of trash left behind ! A trash can along the walk ways around goose and or popular shore fishing spots " easy access " would help ! It's done wonders for twin

Jason DoucetteThe trail on the south side of the lake has already destroyed prime holding habitat for Browns and is increasing siltation.

Jason DoucetteStatus quo please, more development brings in more garbage to be cleaned up.

Parkland Trout FisheriesGarbage is intrinsically tied to people. Parkland Municipalities that participate in aerated trout fisheries foot the bill with aims of bringing people to their communities. Parkland Trout Fisheries is about bringing people and great trout fishing experiences together. A sensible method to reduce garbage creation around our lakes with an increase of people using them is with good developments that facilitate responsible waste containment. Ryan Ginter's suggestion of more accessible refuse deposits is a relatively inexpensive development that supports both environmental and economic points.

Parkland Trout FisheriesThanks for all the recommendations and insights! The more you say, the more we'll hear - so keep'em coming! After a few weeks, I'll turn over the strongest recommendations with the most likes to the Municipality of Roblin.

Jason DoucetteGood comments but there is a tipping point between over development and maintaining the current level of fishery.
