Share this

Red's Dogs and Cones will be reopening March 4th, 2017 with a vintage style complete with checkered floor and historic photos of Gowanda donning the walls.  Keeping the feel of the old "Red's", there have been some menu changes. 

The restaurant will now offer a reuben, a patty melt, a hoagie and soup. Burgers will go from 1/6-pound to 1/4-pound burgers, Shaw said, and the Big Red will go to a 1/3-pound burger.  Red’s will also continue to carry Hershey’s Ice Cream as it did before it closed, including ice cream cakes.

When the weather warms, there will be back outdoor seating with tables and umbrellas.  Plus, there will be free public WiFi.

Hours are 11am to 8pm daily.

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.
