Belews Lake, North Carolina Fishing

Belews Lake is located in the foothilss of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina (North Central). The lake counters with Forsyth, Rockingham, and Stokes counties and is surrounded by various towns, such as Belews Creek, Stokesdale, Pine Halle, and Walnut Cove.  The area is full of beautiful waterfalls and streams. Hanging Rock State Park is about 15 miles to the northwest of Belews Lake.

Covering 3,847 acres, Belews Lake holds an 88 mile shoreline. There are some parts of the lake that reach 100 feet, and reach as high as 130 feet around the dam.  Created in 1973, Belews Lake was built to provide Belews Creek Steam Station a cooling water source.  
Belews Lake is a man-made reservoir covering 3,846 acres, with an 88 mile shoreline. It is retained by a rolled earth dam. The lake often reaches depths of 100 feet, and reaches as high as 130 feet near the dam. Unlike many other man-made lakes, Belews Lake is not used for hydroelectric power. Duke Energy created the lake in 1973 to provide cooling water for its Belews Creek Steam Station, a coal-fired power plant. The Belews Creek Steam Station is the largest coal-fired station in the Duke Energy system.

Belews Lake is truly an interesting fishing location.  Steam that is generated from the nearby power plant surfaces the lake on cool mornings. Foliage around the lake is extremely vibrant during the fall.  Common fish in the lake include: Bass, catfish, crappie, and panfish.  Activities include fishing, boating, hiking, sail and speed boating, paddling, camping, and many various water sports.
