The Nelson River west channel enters the lake at the Jenpeg Dam and the Nelson River east channel enters near the communities of Cross Lake and Cross Lake First Nation. The river then flows north to Sipiwesk Lake. The Minago River enters on the west.
From Moon Lake, the source of the Minago River, a portage led to South Moose Lake and the Saskatchewan River. On the southeast side of Cross Lake via the Walker River, Walker Lake and Kapaspwaypanik Lake the Kapaspwaypanik Portage led to the Carrot River and Oxford Lake on the Hayes River.
