Pelican Lake, a large lake in the southwest region of Manitoba, measuring 22 km (14 miles) long and 2.5 km (1.5 miles) wide. The beauty of the valley is enhanced by the prolific growth of oak, elm, ash, poplar and some birch trees covering the surrounding hills. The area attracts many cottagers and is popular for sailing, bird watching and year-round fishing for Northern pike (Jack), walleye (pickerel) and perch. There are several wild life management areas in and around the valley that are great for hikers to enjoy the flora and fauna of the area.
