Dauphin Lake has developed a walleye fishery to rival Lake of the Prairies. If
fewer walleye are caught here, it's not by many, and the walleye coming out of
Dauphin Lake are reportedly bigger than their cousins to the west. Fish weighing
1.4 - 1.8 kg (3-4 lbs) or more are the norm for this lake. This is a very
shallow lake, so take care when boating.

The type and size of tent you need to carry will depend upon the number of
people who plan to sleep in it as well as the climatic conditions. The LED
flashlight will also use less battery power, so that your flashlight lasts
longer, and your bulb will burn for many times longer than a traditional bulb,
meaning that you won t have to remember to change bulbs out between trips. I
admit hiking can be very tough on your legs and back and I have almost not made
a few of my hikes.
When was the last time you went to sleep listening to crickets and bullfrogs, an
owl hooting or the soulful cry of the loon. You will be able to cook outside and
make the trip even better. Learn to recognize and remember landmarks and while
hiking try to familiarize yourself with your surroundings.
A good flashlight is certainly one of the bare necessities of camping life.
There are many websites that give you ample information about the best places as
well as the best time for rock climbing. Light weight glove liners can be added
for extra warmth.
Map and compass are a good idea of course, and tell someone where you'll be.
Indoor climbing is a safe way to get a feel for the sport of rock climbing.

From early days the Dauphin area
has been widely known as a hunters'
paradise, both for bird hunting (ducks,
geese, prairie chicken, partridge)
and for big game hunting (deer, elk,
moose). Fishing is an outdoor pastime
which has never lost its popularity-with
lakes, rivers and streams aplenty
in this and surrounding areas of north western
The Dauphin area benefitted greatly
from the provincial government's program
for public playgrounds and recreational
parks. By 1960 the provincial lands branch
had developed no less than seven beach
parks in this area, with Tom Locke
in charge of planning them: Manipogo
and Crane River parks, on the shores
of Lake Manitoba; Waterhen, on Waterhen
and Rainbow beaches on the
shores of Lake Dauphin; Brokenpipe, at
the lake 18 miles north-west of Dauphin.
The official opening of Rainbow Beacha
lO3-acre "family beach" site 12 miles
east of Dauphin, between Dauphin and
Ochre beaches-was attended by hundreds
of families on July 2, 1960, bringing
Premier Duff Roblin to participate in the
ceremonies. Since then, the improvement
and development of Stony Point and Sifton
beaches on Lake Dauphin have been undertaken
by the Rural Municipality of Dauphin
as centennial projects.
The recreational paradise of the Riding
Mountain National Park, developed by the
federal government since the early 1930's
is literally at the doorstep of Dauphin
residents, with facilities for camping,
hiking, picnicking, swimming, boating,
fishing, riding, lawn bowling, roller skating,
tennis and golf all available at Clear
Lake resort 40 miles to the south. The
beautiful lakes and forest setting of the
Duck Mountain, now designated as a
provincial park, also offer outdoor
recreation unsurpassed anywhere else in
When we as Pioneers reminisce on
the past, we look to the horizon and
wonder what a vast wilderness this
country would still be if the early
settlers had not come in to take up
Yes, they bet the Canadian Government
$10 for a quarter section of land
that they would win-and win they did.
Truly it was no pushover; there were
many hardships and difficulties to be
overcome. It was a grim battle with
nature and the elements right from
the start. These were the best of times,
everyone looked to the future with hope;
and the worst of times, as the land had
to be cleared and broken, and with only
the primitive way to do it-namely, human
muscle, with such tools as the axe, the
grub-hoe and the scythe. The trees and
scrub were cleared off, oxen and horses
were used as beasts of burden to break
and plow the virgin soil; root picking
a never ending job.
Men, women and families came from
every walk of life to make a home in
a new land. Their mode of travel was
by oxen, horses and wagon; some even
moved in by sleigh while others came
on foot, often only a blazed trail to go
by. After they left the railroad it generally
took three days to make Dauphin
from Neepawa, a hundred miles away.
