Fishing

Did you know the RM of St. Clements is the Sport Fishing Capital of Manitoba?

It’s true! Our western border is all water – over 1000 km of shoreline. Not to mention the many creeks and the substantial Netley-Libau Marsh  which is considered one of the largest freshwater wetlands in Canada and an important wildlife area. Thousands of trophy-sized fish have been caught in these waters, as you can see on the Manitoba Master Angler pages: https://anglers.travelmanitoba.com/

Trails

The RM of St. Clements has a variety of trails for walking, cycling, skiing, and snowmobiling.

Trans Canada Trail

A portion of the TransCanada Trail known as Red River North Trail runs through the RM of St. Clements.

Duff Roblin Parkway Trail

Duff Roblin Parkway Trail supports multi-use, non-motorized, four-season recreational opportunities along the Red River Floodway including walking, hiking, and biking in the summer and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. The public can walk, run, bike, or ski as much or as little of the trail as they like. Along the way, users will follow the floodway channel and will have an opportunity to see wildlife and vegetation along with agricultural land.

A key focus of the development was to provide linkages to the existing recreational opportunities such as the Trans-Canada Trail and Birds Hill Provincial Park. Duff Roblin Provincial Park, located near the south end of the floodway, will link directly into the Duff Roblin Parkway Trail.

About Red River Floodway: built in the 1960s to protect Winnipeg from Red River flood waters, more earth was moved for this project than for construction of the Panama Canal.

Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail

The Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail is a 3.6 km return floating boardwalk interpreted from a First Nations perpective and translated in Ojibway and English. The Brokenhead Wetland is part of Lake Winnipeg’s vast watershed that filters surface water before it enters the lake. The trail highlights the cultural and envirnmental importance between the four themes of respect, purpose, balance and interconnection. For more information go to debwendon.org.
