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 - July 2016

For the past number of years FLIPPR has been concentrating on developing new lakes at the expense of monitoring or managing lakes after they were brought online. Rumours of problems with pike and yellow perch surfaced – funding was secured to investigate concerns and has been secured for work in 2016 & 2017. Fisheries Branch Western Region bought an electrofishing boat, and FLIPPR reached an agreement with Swan Valley to have their technicians as and when available.
