Encyclopedia Article for Reindeer Lake

lake in northern Canada, straddling the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border, near the northern limit of the coniferous forest. At an elevation of 1,106 feet (337 m), it is 2,568 square miles (6,650 square km) in area, 152 miles (245 km) long and up to 35 miles (56 km) wide, irregular in shape, and island-dotted. The lake is fed by numerous streams, and it drains southward over a control dam into the Reindeer River, a tributary of the Churchill. An important transportation link in fur-trade days, it is now a major commercial- and sport-fishing lake. Riparian settlements include Brochet (Manitoba) and Southend and Kinoosao (Saskatchewan); the last is connected to the mining town of Lynn Lake, Manitoba, by road.
