Redwaters, also known as Dellon-lune,[1] was the southernmost in the Ten Towns of Icewind Dale,[2] fished for its knucklehead trout that was used for scrimshaw.[3]

The lake was peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. Named for a famous battle as opposed to the color of its waters,[2] the lake actually ranged in hue from dazzling green in the morn to twinkling silver at night.[4]


Redwaters was located on the southern stretch of Icewind Dale.[4] It was fed by the Redrun river that flowed from nearby Lac Dinneshere.[5]


The lake's original name was Dellon-lune, but it was renamed after a fight between rival fishing boats left bloody corpses in the water, hence 'Redwaters.'[3]

Around the Year of the Crown, 1351 DR,[6] Regis, Companion of the Hall, witnessed a small skirmish between fishing boats over fishing rights, where one man died.[7]

Notable locationsEdit


The shores of the lake were home to the independent settlements of Dougan's Hole and Good Mead. Few folks traveled to Redwaters lake, beyond those that hailed from these hamlets. [2][4]
