Touchwood Lake is a lake in the Hayes River drainage basin in Census Division No. 22 - Thompson-North Central, Northern Region, Manitoba, Canada. The lake is about 20.9 kilometres (13.0 mi) long and 4.4 kilometres (2.7 mi) wide and lies at an elevation of 184 metres (604 ft). The primary inflows (clockwise from the northwest) are the Mink River, Wanless Creek, and the Wapawukaw River, and the primary outflow is a channel to Vermilyea Lake.
Vermilyea Lake is shaped like the letter "L" on its side, is about 9.3 kilometres (5.8 mi) long and 8.2 kilometres (5.1 mi) wide, and lies at an elevation of 184 metres (604 ft). The primary inflow is a channel from Touchwood Lake, and the primary outflows are the twin channels of the Wesachewan River to Gods Lake.
Wesachewan River is a short river that flows 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) out of Vermilyea Lake via twin channels then flows over the Namaykos Rapids, and empties into Wesachewan Bay on Gods Lake. The main channel from Vermilyea Lake is the east channel which is straighter and 1.8 kilometres (1.1 mi) shorter than its twin (1.25 kilometres / 0.78 miles versus 3.05 kilometres / 1.90 miles), the west channel. The river's waters eventually flow via the Gods River and the Hayes River into Hudson Bay.
