A special thank you to the organizations who supported this year’s survey; FLIPPR, Rural Municipality of Roblin, Parkland Paradise, Fisheries and Wildlife Enhancement Fund, Manitoba Sustainable Development – Parks, local lodges and outdoor/fishing shops. SVSFE would also like to express gratitude to those anglers who took the time to fill out angler surveys and tagged fish returns over the years. This signifies your true investment into our fisheries and we ask you to continue sharing, spread the word! We need more anglers informed on how important it is to have managers aware of what fisherman are experiencing. With significant data comes quality management. Management that will ensure sustainable and high quality fisheries for Parkland users.
This year’s surveys declared the Duck Mountains as the most frequented area visited and as a whole, was the most favorite fishing destination. Anglers stated they are looking to catch master angler fish and spend time outdoors with family and friends when heading to the Parkland. Again, two years in a row, rainbow trout was the most targeted species. Anglers supported a variety of initiatives but noted fish stocking, development of new fisheries and enhancement to fish habitat to be top priorities. If you have an initiative or idea you would like to share, submit an angler survey today!
