I have grouped these two lakes together as they are somewhat similar
Both lakes are located in the Turtle Mountain area of Manitoba, 1½ hours south of Brandon making them 3½ away from Winnipeg.
Bower is the bigger lake, stocked with rainbow trout. The water is prone to turbidity due to the type of lake, the wind and the power boats. There is little in the way of shore access so you would need a water craft of some sort.
There is good camping nearby with everything from rough to full service.
William is a little east of William. The 2 species of note are Brown Trout and Small Mouth bass. The browns are stocked and bass where put in to control the perch. There is a gas motor ban and a limit on taking bass.
Great camping right on the lake but they are all un-serviced
