This stretch flows north for about 15 miles through Chautauqua County, ending at the barrier at Westfield Waterworks. It is classified as a landlocked/ inland trout stream and has no connection with Chautauqua Lake. The state annually stocks several hundred 8-inch brown trout into the headwaters west of Summerdale. Most are taken by June on worms and salted minnows. This stream’s midsection is popular with purists due to the wild browns and rainbows that thrive in the rugged, remote stretch called the Gulf. These wild fish average 10 inches and are partial to nymphs and worms. This creek is easiest to fish in May. Key species: Brown trout and rainbow trout
