Celebrate all things blueberry at the annual Humphrey Blueberry Day! Since 1996 the community of Humphrey has come together to celebrate Blueberry Day. Blueberry Day includes an all-you-can-eat blueberry pancake breakfast, raffles, games, bake sale, and other family-oriented activities. Funds raised from Blueberry Day have helped the local volunteer fire department, paid for town beautification projects, and funded other quality of life endeavors.

The core of Blueberry Day is the involvement of friends and neighbors who organize and conduct the event. Childs Blueberries is a widely regarded and highly successful blueberry farm located on top of the hills of Humphrey who also donate all the blueberries for this Festival. Ideal soil and weather and a deep family tradition produces the finest blueberries in the world and a community partner. 

Enjoy everything blueberry on Saturday, August 12th at the Humphrey Fire Hall, 4591 Humphrey Road, Humphrey NY. For more information, please call 716-945-5123.

There will be blueberry dessert contests, face painting, family games, raffles and of course, ALL YOU CAN EAT BLUEBERRY PANCAKES from 8am to 11:30am.  Adults are $5 and children under 10 are $3.

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.
