Come spend a fun summer’s evening at Red House Beach Area as Allegany State Park and the Cattaraugus County Arts Council team up once again for their 6th Annual Beach Party.  

Allegany State Park and the Cattaraugus County Arts Council have once again teamed up to present their semi-annual art show and silent auction. This year’s event, “Works on Wood” features local artists’ interpretation of camp stools, signs, baskets, and hiking sticks –with maybe a few surprises thrown in!

 Local artists were asked to raid their basements, attics, garages, estate sales, etc. to find pieces to transform into works of art. Even unique items from area beaches and local trash days were salvaged and reused. The result? A display of items that will appeal to animal lovers, campers, outdoors enthusiasts, nature lovers, those interested in Allegany State Park, and more!

 Pieces will be on display for viewing in the Quaker Store Museum of Allegany State Park until August 9th. That afternoon they will be moved to the Red House Beach area of the park in preparation for the silent auction at the annual ASP/CCAC Beach Party that night.

 The Beach Party will feature music by ASP’s own Artist in Residence, Kevin McCarthy who brings his fun, energetic, and infectious brand of music to this event. He will be followed by WNY’s own New York Rockin’ Revue, a quartet of great musicians who bring a “Fun is Contagious” attitude to all their performances! The Beach Party will also feature kids activities, a lifeguard competition, and maybe even the Limbo (everybody limber up!). The night will be capped off with a beautiful fireworks display over Red House Lake.

 In addition to the park, the “Works on Wood” pieces can also be viewed on the Cattaraugus County  Arts Council website: www.myartscouncil.net or the Allegany State Park Facebook page. All proceeds from the auction go towards arts programming in the park in conjunction with the CCAC.

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
