Lake of the Prairies - Mitchell's East

The impoundment of water caused by the Shellmouth dam is known as the Lake of the Prairies and is naturally confined by both the Assiniboine and Shell River Valleys. The primary fluctuations of the reservoir are flood control and water storage. It is important to note that water levels fluctuate throughout the year. The Asessippi Provincial Park and Ski Asessippi are situated at the south end of the lake and provides important regional and provincial water-oriented recreational opportunities, allowing for year-round, cottage based leisure. As well, Roblin Golf and Country Club, a charming 9-hole public course is located just a short drive away.

The subdivision is located in the aspen-oak parkland of the Boreal Forest Region, where trembling aspen is the dominant tree species. The subdivision offers spectacular views of sloping valleys which are ideal habitats for white-tailed deer, coyotes, raccoons, and the occasional elk or moose.

Lake of the Prairies is 68 km long. It has a width varying from approximately 183 to 805 metres (600 to 2,641 feet), a surface area of 65,150,000 m2 (6,515 ha) and a maximum depth of about 15 metres (49 ft). The lake supports an active year-round sport fishery. Species caught by anglers, include northern pike, walleye, yellow perch and carp.
