Boyden Lake
Boyden Lake was named for the family of Delphia Boyden, who built homes and lived along the shores.  The lake was originally named "Nasahick" by the Indians which could be interpreted to mean "Muddy Waters".  Boyden Lake is located in both the towns of Perry and Robbinston.  There is a public boat landing in Robbinston.  The waters of Boyden Lake were once used as a source of power for lumber and grist mills.  Today it is the source of water for Passamaquoddy Water District, supplying portions of Perry, Pleasant Point, and Eastport.  Today, local sport fishermen enjoy recreational fishing for bass, salmon, trout, perch and pickerel as much in summer as during the ice fishing season.  It is not uncommon to see an American Bald Eagle or two flying overhead hoping to catch a fish of their own.  The Boyden Lake Association......
