• Deer Rips Dam Portage and Fishing Area

    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.
