View of Knickerbocker Lake looking to the right from the unimproved boat launch
Knickerbocker Lake is an 86-acre body of water located in Boothbay, Lincoln County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 7 C2). The public access point is located at the end of a dirt road called Access Road off Barters Island Road (just passed the Evergreen Cemetery) about a mile west of the Route 27 traffic circle in downtown Boothbay. A sign announcing “Knickerbocker Lake” used to hang at that turn-off but was missing when I visited. Drive down Access Road for about a quarter mile until you reach a small parking area. The lake is visible through the trees.
View Map Knickerbocker Pond is an 86-acre body of water located in Boothbay, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 7 C2). This pond is reached via Access Road off Barters Island Road. Be aware that Access Road could be problematic in deep snow as it may not be plowed in the winter. That’s not a problem today thanks to the extensive melting that occurred earlier in the week. I’ve decided to fish Knickerbocker Pond, even though it is located about 1.5 hours east of where I live, because the state stocked this pond exceptionally well with five-pound broodstock rainbow trout in the fall of 2012.
