Northern pike, largemouth bass, black crappie, brown bullhead, pumpkinseed and yellow perch.
Putnam Pond used to be stocked with tiger musky, but the policy was cancelled after many years of not seeing a return. There may still be a few adult fish present in the pond. The lake is a popular fishing destination for black crappie and yellow perch. It is a common destination for ice anglers. The northern arm of the pond is mostly featureless and may offer its best fishing in the winter and early spring.
Statewide fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website)
Ice fishing is permitted.
