FISHING & HUNTING
With the lakes, streams and creeks of the region well stocked from Randolph Fish Hatchery, this is truly an angler’s paradise — from trout season in the spring to winter ice fishing on our frozen lakes. Cattaraugus Creek is one of the top 10 sites in the nation for Steelhead. And hunters will find bountiful game in the hillsides and fields of the area. Cattaraugus County is the number one place in the state for turkey hunting and one of the top three locations for deer hunting.
