Deer Rips Dam Portage and Fishing Area is located north of the Great Falls between Gulf Island and Deer Rips Dam. Its purpose is to provide a way to get around the Deer Rips Impoundment and continue a downstream paddle along the Androscoggin.
Directions: To access the Deer Rips Dam Portage from the water, paddle to the right of the impoundment. On the right side of the river, you will see a boat launch. Transport your boat from that location down the road to the next boat launch which will be on the left.
