Lake Pohenegamook (Lac Pohénégamook) is a Canadian lake located in Temiscouata Regional County Municipality (MRC), in administrative region of Bas-Saint-Laurent, in southeastern Quebec immediately north of the International Boundary with Maine at Aroostook County. It is the source of the Saint Francis River.
Oriented north-south, the lake is nestled in a valley in the Notre Dame Mountains, part of the Appalachian Range. Route 289 runs along the southern and western shores through the municipality of Pohénégamook - an amalgamation of several villages.
The National Transcontinental Railway constructed its mainline from Winnipeg to Moncton along the western and southern shores in 1912 - today this line forms the mainline of CN Rail between Halifax and Montreal.
