Guide To Fishing At Dewey Lake

Rental boats, a marina, boat launch ramps, lodging, camping and shopping are all close at hand when you visit Dewey Lake, an 1,100-acre lake in eastern Kentucky. Anglers can explore over 50 miles of shoreline by boat, or much of it for fishing from the bank.
Monster muskies draw a lot of the fishing attention, but the lake also has good bass, crappie, hybrid stripers, catfish and sunfish fishing.
