Fish Species:

Rainbow trout, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, and black crappie.

Fishing:

Trout fishing is generally best from mid-April, shortly after they are stocked, until early-June. Fishing is restricted to shore fishing only, so using a bobber is recommended when using bait. A bobber will help keep your bait off the bottom and give you some added weight when casting. If there is enough of a breeze to move your bobber around, it will aid you in covering more of the pond from shore.

Regulations:

Special fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).

Fisheries Management:

Patterson Pond #1 is stocked annually with approximately 760 one year-old rainbow trout (8-9").
