Guide To Fishing At Deadwood Reservoir
AKA: Deadwood Lake
In the rugged wild of Idaho sits Deadwood Reservoir, a 3,000-acre lake in the central part of the state, 12 miles north of Lowman. The lake is about 4 miles long, with over 20 miles of shoreline. All of the east side, and some of the northwest and southwest sides of the reservoir have road access, some of which presents opportunity for fishing from the bank.
Much of the camping areas in the upper (north) end of the lake are near the water while Cozy Cove Campground sits on a bluff overlooking the lake. This is trout and salmon country with plenty of catching, and an occasional trophy. Trolling is very popular. Boat launch ramps are available on the north, east and south sides of the lake.
