Info. Spring ice along the shore of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Located in central Manitoba, Lake Winnipeg is the sixth largest freshwater lake in Canada. It is 435 kilometres long and at least 109 kilometres wide. With an area of about 24,400 square kilometres, Lake Winnipeg has a shoreline consisting of white-sand beaches, limestone cliffs and boreal forests. Hence, this area sits as a huge nesting ground for birds like pelicans, gulls and cormorants. Plenty of fish can be found here as well – Lake Winnipeg is a commercial fishing hub and contributes significantly to Manitoba’s fishing industry revenue. So, whatever the season may be, fishing fans can be spotted here all year round.
