Fishing Report: Binta supports a good Rainbow and Lake Char fishery. Much like Uncha Lake, Rainbows will reach up to 2+ lbs. while Char are capable of 20+ lbs. Deep trolling with spoons or plugs is your best bet for landing one of these monsters. Rainbows are caught either by trolling smaller lures such as flatfish or with spinning gear. Flies (especially attractor patterns) work well in the shallow bay areas either by casting or trolling.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
