Fishing in Machias, Maine

Things to Do

Here in Machias, we live the simple life. You will not find high rise buildings, concrete parking garages, or shopping malls here.  But what you will find is fresh air, friendly folks, and scenery that takes your breath away.  You may have to travel a bit (20 miles or less) to see all that Downeast Maine has to offer, but it is not stressful traveling on multi-lane highways, fighting traffic and barely escaping road rage. Rivers, lakes, and streams abound. Blueberry fields, green trees, and Maine wildlife are constantly in view.  Fishing villages like Cutler, Machiasport, Jonesport and Lubec are sprinkled along our coast.  Explore the links below to discover things to do while visiting Machias.
