No only did local residents enjoy the sunny weather Chautauqua County experienced this summer, but tourists did too.
Good weather is one reason why several businesses in the county did well this summer. Dan Dalpra, Italian Fisherman Restaurant owner, said the ''phenomenal'' weather was critical in the success of his Bemus Point business.
''The weather played a real important role when compared to last year,'' he said. ''Weather brought a lot of people out. With the solid weather and a little more confidence in the economy, I think we did better this summer.''
Weather also helped Chautauqua Heights Campground in Dewittville. Anita Perry, owner along with her husband Bill, said they had an…

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…

ELLERY - Ellery Town Board members would like to "explore the possibility of leasing" Long Point State Park from the state in hopes of keeping it open.
Long Point is on a list of state parks slated for closure as a way to help fix the state's fiscal crisis. The list is being debated as part of state budget deliberations.
The idea of the park closing, however, is "unacceptable" to the town's officials.
"This short-sighted action by the state of New York would have serious consequences to the economic interest of the town's citizens together with depriving thousands of people of the wonderful recreational opportunities afforded by Long Point State Park," said Town Supervisor Arden Johnson. For instance, he said, people stop at town businesses during a…

Warmer weather should bring a host of fishing opportunities to anglers. As of Wednesday evening, there is still safe ice at Chautauqua Lake, including edge ice, according to Lisa Green at Happy Hooker Bait & Tackle in Ashville. Yellow perch are still the feature fish over most of the lake, with the larger fish reported over deeper water. Walleye chatter has been scarce, but anglers are probably focusing closer to spawning streams where the fish tend to stage up in the springtime. Calicos have been a night bite until Wednesday when one happy angler reported hitting the fish at Mayville from 7 a.m., until noon. Green also reports anglers have been finding hold-over (dark) trout biting at Chautauqua Creek.
Lee Weber, in Brant, reports anglers have also…
