For those not afraid of single-digit temperatures, the county's snowmobile trails are open.
On Wednesday, several sources indicated the trails were open. All reminded riders that conditions are marginal.
The Chautauqua County Trail Conditions hotline told riders to be careful because high winds have knocked down tree limbs which could potentially be along the paths.
''Pay attention to your surroundings and watch your speed,'' the recording said, which can be accessed by calling 800-242-4569, followed by pressing the No. 2 and then 5.
The Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club has a telephone hotline and a website. The Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Club Sno-Phone, which can be reached by calling 753-2924, said trails are in poor condition because there…

The New York State Snowmobile Association is reminding snowmobilers that local trails are not considered officially open until a local club has inspected and cleared trails for the 2012-13 season.
Although the snowmobile season won't begin until after the hunting season ends in late December, association members are encouraging all snowmobilers to use the time to join their local clubs and register their sled.
"Our recent economic impact study shows that our sport contributes $868 million to the state economy," said Dominic Jacangelo, association executive director. "We work with local municipalities and landowners to provide riding options for our members…

Chautauqua County sits directly in the path of lake effect snow storms that gather strength over Lake Erie and drop more than 200 inches of snow annually. More often than not, the region welcomes the holidays with a carpet of white and the season with a frozen crystal wonderland. This pocket of precipitation is precisely why winter is a perfect time to plan a visit.
With annual snowfall that rivals Colorado ski towns, southwestern New York offers plenty of opportunity for downhill snow sports. Near Findley Lake, the Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa provides an excellent backdrop for true beginners all the way to expert level skiers and snowboarders with 27 slopes, eight chairlifts, three progression terrain parks and a halfpipe. There’s even a tubing…

Ice Fishing on Lake ChautauquaChautauqua Lake offers "hardwater" angling opportunities for walleye and panfish. Ice fishing can be an enjoyable outing for the whole family and only requires a minimum of equipment. Clothing is key to an enjoyable ice-fishing experience-dress in layers and use a good pair of insulated pack boots.Anglers will also need an ice auger, or spud, to cut a hole through the ice and an ice skimmer to clean the ice chips out of the hole. Ice fishing tackle should be geared toward the size fish you want to catch. Generally, lighter is better to catch sensitive-biting fish like bluegill and crappie. Use a short, lightweight fishing pole outfitted with 4-6 pound test line and smaller bait. When fishing for panfish, small jigs work…

2011 Lecture Themes Announced
The morning lectures are a signature of Chautauqua’s program. Weekdays at 10:45 a.m., the stage of the 5,000-seat Amphitheater becomes the platform for distinguished scientists, authors, educators and experts in such fields as national and international affairs, arts and humanities, business, and the environment. Through the years, Chautauqua has committed itself to civil, civic dialogue on matters that shape our world. Susan B. Anthony argued here for women’s suffrage in 1892 and Franklin D. Roosevelt gave his "I Hate War" speech from the same stage in 1936. Margaret Mead, Amelia Earhart, Thurgood Marshall, Freeman Dyson, Jane Goodall, Sandra Day O’Connor, Kurt Vonnegut and Oscar Arias are among the speakers who have…

The lake is divided into two basins of nearly equal size by Bemus Point. The north basin of Chautauqua Lake averages 25 feet deep, with a maximum depth of 75 feet. The south basin is considerably shallower, with an average depth of 11 feet and a maximum depth of 19 feet.
Yellow perch, white perch, pumpkinseed, bluegill, crappie and bullhead can be caught year-round in Chautauqua Lake and are fish fun to catch for both the novice and expert angler. Weed lines are often good spots to locate panfish — they provide security from predators and are an abundant food source for insects and other invertebrates. During the summer and fall, live baits such as minnows or worms produce the best catches. Preferred gear is an ultralight rod and reel with 4 to 6…
