Gulf Island Dam Portage and Fishing Area is located north of the Great Falls just after Gulf Island. Its purpose is to provide a way to get around the dam and continue a downstream paddle along the Androscoggin.
Directions: To access the Gulf Island Dam Portage and Fishing Area from the water, paddle to the right side of the impoundment. There you will find a hand-carry boat launch where you can pull your boat ashore and transport it approximately five hundred feet to the next hand-carry boat launch which will be on the left. For access by car, turn down N River Road via Pettengill Road and park just before N River Road bends to the right.
