Recreational motor boat traffic is prohibited from operating within 100 metres of shorelines. Several boat launches are closed in the Whiteshell and all traffic on Whiteshell lakes should be aware of debris and areas of floating bog. Details on watercraft restrictions and launch closures are available at www.manitobaparks.com.

As of May 25, the following restrictions apply (from www.manitobaparks.com)
