Like fishing? Then you’ve come to the right place. The Roblin area, with its abundance of small streams, rivers and lakes, is recognized as one of the world’s best areas for fly-fishing.

And for real fishing variety, cast your line into the Blue Lakes and Child’s Lake in Duck Mountain Provincial Park, where you might just snag a walleye, yellow perch, trout, splake or northern pike. These are also great lakes for boating, canoeing and swimming -- and even scuba diving at Blue Lake!
