Knapp is located southeast of the town of Burns
Lake. From Burns Lake turn south onto Hwy. #35 and travel
to the community of Francois
Lake. Take a free, 20 minute ferry ride across Francois Lake
to the community of Southbank. From the ferry dock turn left and
follow the main road leading southeast to Uncha
Lake. Turn right on Campbell Road and then onto Binta Road.
Follow this road past the south side of Binta Lake onto the Binta-Cheslatta
Lake Road which will take you to the south side of Knapp Lake.
By taking the Binta Forest Service Road (as if you are heading
to Anzus Lake) and then turning right
onto the Binta-Knapp Road you can access the north side of the
lake, however the road may be rough. Another way of getting to
this lake is by taking the Francois Lake East Road located just
west of the community of Fraser Lake off Hwy. #16. Connecting
roads to Knapp Lake lead off of Francois Lake East Road.
A small BCFS campsite is located at the lake.
Report: Knapp can be at times an excellent fishing
lake with Rainbows in the 1-1/2 lb. range and Lake Char up to
15 lbs. or better. A Lake Char weighing 31 lbs. was caught in
the spring of 1996. Trolling with spoons or plugs along with gang
trolls will bring you success catching these huge fish. Lake Whitefish
also inhabit Knapp. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
