Great place to hike and catch some brooke trout? Went there in may of 08' and caught some nice sized trout... Says Emily
Putnam Creek has a close by whitewater run; the Penfield Pond to Factoryville sector is a fine 5.5-mile-in-length category IV-V+ run of whitewater. Don't go whitewater paddling on this run of Putnam Creek unless you believe your whitewater paddling skills are very fine. You have to check current conditions ahead of going; whitewater paddling
may turn perilous. If you have a boat, Schroon Lake Marina is an excellent marina, and you acquire a pleasant vista of Grizzle Ocean Mountain from here.
