Basher Kill is a stream in the U.S. state of New York.[1] It is a tributary to the Neversink River.[2]

Basher Kill was named after Bashee, a local Native American woman.[2] Many variant spellings have been recording, including "Ba-sha Kill", "Basha's Kill", "Basher's Kill", "Bashers Kil", Bashers Kill", and "Bashes Kil".[1]

The stream flows through Basha Kill Wildlife Management Area, a manmade wetland maintained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) as a New York State Wildlife Management Area.[3] The NYSDEC built a dam along the watercourse in the 1970s to preserve the Basha Kill and its wildlife.[3]
