The community of Portage Lake, ME is located in northern Aroostook County. Portage Lake has a population of approximately 391 residents. The Town of Portage Lake is located in a region of Maine known as the St. John Valley. This area encompasses the rivers, streams and valleys that flow into the St. John River. The early settlers of this area were predominantly French speaking, and that heritage continues to this day. The residents of this area have a close connection to the land working it either as farmers or timber harvesters and the related support industries.

The area is a four season recreational destination for many. The lakes, ponds, rivers and streams are sparkling, clean and full of brook trout, landlocked salmon and lake trout. The St. John River has become a destination for muskie fishing as well, as this species has become firmly established in the cold clear waters of the St. John River watershed. The farmland interspersed amongst the thousands of acres of rolling timberland is home to ruffed grouse, deer, moose and bear.

The section of Route 11 that begins in Portage Lake ending in Fort Kent has been designated a scenic byway. The drive along this section of road provides breathtaking views of the lakes, rolling farmland, and timber filled woodlands of the Fish River Scenic Byway. Many outdoor events are promoted in this area with the Fort Kent International Muskie Tournament drawing anglers to the area in search of a trophy musky and a winning purse during August each year. In the winter the area supports the Can-Am sled dog competition as well as the world cup biathlon competition. Ice fisherman can participate in the Long Lake Ice Fishing Derby that happens just a few miles from Portage Lake in the town of St. Agatha each year. Ample snowfall provides snowmobilers excellent opportunities to explore the area on sled during the winter months, and many miles of ATV trails provide a similar opportunity during the summer and fall.

Healthcare can be found in Eagle Lake, Fort Kent, Caribou as well as Presque Isle at the Fish River Rural Health Clinic, Northern Maine Medical Center, Cary Medical Center and the Aroostook Medical Center respectively. Shopping opportunities can be found in Fort Kent along its Main St and in Presque Isle at the Aroostook Center Mall. Higher education opportunities are close to home as well with the University of Maine campuses in Fort Kent and Presque Isle as well as Northern Maine Community College located in Presque Isle. So what are you waiting for?
