2016 Taste
"Art in the Park" by Susan Andrews

If the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach, then Olean is a destination visitors are sure to love. The Taste of Olean will be held on July 25th. Time to loosen that belt a few notches, gather family and friends and head down to the 72nd Annual Art in the Park and the 31st Annual Taste of Olean.

The Taste of Olean is a festival filled with great food and entertainment. Admission to the event is free. Pay as you eat!  Booths will be accepting cash. For more information on the Taste of Olean, call Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce at 716-372-4433 or e-mail taste [at] oleanny [dot] com.  The restaurants will present "tastes" of foods, not whole meals or sandwiches — smaller portions with affordable costs between 50 cents and $5.00.  Since there are sooo many new restaurants in Olean, this is a great way to get a sampling of all of them! 

Art in the Park, sponsored by the Tri-County Arts Council (CCAC) held in conjunction with the Taste, is a juried fine arts show with a long standing tradition of showcasing the finest art in southwestern New York and northwestern Pennsylvania. Celebrating its 71st year, Art in the Park is dedicated to excellence in visual arts and handcrafted goods as well as enhancing and promoting the visual arts and the talented artists and artisans in the area.

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.
