This old highway bridge at the head of Belfast Harbor is now a public right-of-way for pedestrians and anglers, and a popular spot for shore-based anglers. You can fish from the bridge and watch lobster fishermen hauling traps at the same time. One of the East Coast’s few remaining fish canneries is located near the bridge. U.S. Route 1 is lined with motels between Belfast and Searsport, and there are two campgrounds on the same stretch of highway. Key Species: mackerel, striped bass, smelt, bluefish.
