Lewey Lake and Miami River have great fish populations and are great for anglers in the center of the Adirondacks.
Lewey Lake provides large populations of northern pike, brown trout, lake trout, and smallmouth bass. Lewey Lake and the Miami River are both located in the middle of the Adirondacks in Hamilton County. The best fishing on the Miami River is where it enters into Lewey Lake.
Northern pike can be found in the big weedbed at the south end of the lake where the Miami River enters the lake. Brown and lake trout can be found in the mid-lake deep waters. Rocky shorelines is the best place for smallmouth bass fishing too.
There are a few areas of opportunities for brown trout along the Miami River but not in Lewey Lake.
The DEC campground off Route 30, is the only location for a trailer launch on Lewey Lake.
