Hinsdale Horseradish Fest 2017

Not only will you find everything horseradish, you'll find vendors with wine, craft beer, pottery, handmade jewelry, furniture, handmade soaps, country crafts, candles, paintings and more! The festival will be held June 3, 2017, at the Hinsdale Memorial Park, at 1547 Gile Hollow Road in the Town of Hinsdale.  The venue is ideal! The park is located only one-half mile south of I-86, directly off of Route 16. It’s an easy drive from anywhere in western NY or northern PA.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our festival you may ask "Why a Horseradish Festival? Why Hinsdale"? Well, Cuba has their Garlic Festival, Franklinville has their Maple Festival, Bradford has their Stink Fest and Olean - well there is always something going on in Olean (except for that 1st weekend in June)… and we wanted Hinsdale to be remembered for something. Besides, in the early 1900’s, horseradish really was a “hot commodity” in Hinsdale. Maude Bell and her family grew horseradish right here along the banks of the Ischua Creek and hauled it by horse and buggy to the market in Olean.

Here is the schedule:
Saturday June 3rd- 11am-1pm: TBA
                            1:30-4:30pm: Diggin Roots Band (All WNY Music Award-won second
                                                 place in the Best Blues Band/Act category)

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.
