2018 Hollywood Happening

Every spring thousands of people travel to Gowanda to look at the rows of motorcycles that line the closed main street, enjoy the music and the food and celebrate the beginning of bike season in Western New York. It’s an event with no gate fee. The three-day event includes a number of attractions, such as the Bike Parade that leaves the Gowanda Harley Davidson dealership on Friday night and ends in town for the opening ceremonies. A tattoo contest, Ride-in Bike show and the Hollywood Happening Charity Ride are just some of the other attractions that can be enjoyed over the weekend. Enthusiasts can partake of the number of food and product vendors on-site, or simply sit back and listen to the live bands that will play throughout the weekend.

So, come and join the countless others who have enjoyed the Hollywood Happening and who have helped in the efforts to restore the Hollywood Theater to her 1926 splendor.  For more information on the Hollywood Theater, please visit GowandaHollywoodTheater.com

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.
