Lake Winnipeg

At 24,514 sq km (9,465 sq mi) Lake Winnipeg is the fifth-largest lake in Canada, larger in fact than Lake Ontario of Great Lakes fame.

Located 55 km (34 mi) directly north of the city of Winnipeg, it's a sportsman's paradise, and as an important commercial lake.

Lake Winnipeg produces the significant part of Manitoba's $35 million-a-year fishing industry revenue.

The lake's watershed is huge. Some of its major tributaries include the Bloodvein, Popular, Red and Winnipeg rivers. The lake drains north into the Nelson River, and on into Hudson Bay.
