Chautauqua-Lake is one of the highest navigable bodies of water in North America, at 1,308 feet above sea level. It's well known for its exceptional fishing, especially for walleye, bass, muskellunge and several species of panfish. Chautauqua Lake is located in the southeast corner of the county by the same name, about 15 miles northwest of Jamestown between Hartfield and Dewittville. The lake is about 17.5 miles long with a surface area of 13.156 acres. Boat cruises are offered on the lake, and public boating access and shoreline fishing are available at the Pendergast Point boat launch and Long Point State Park, where there is a marina and day use area. Hiking, biking, swimming and picnicking are also available around the lake. Nearby Jamestown was called "The Best Little Golf Town in America" in a survey by Golf Digest Magazine in 2002, and Chautauqua County is full of other interesting little towns, antique shops and art galleries. The secluded village of Chautauqua is a summer arts and education center that borders the lake, with Victorian cottages lining the narrow tree-lined streets that slope down to the water. In summertime, the small town's population reaches as high as 7,500. Chautauqua Lake is also a great spot for ice fishing in the wintertime.

Chautauqua Lake Weather & Climate

Western New York has a four season climate that is somewhat influenced by the Great Lakes. Winters are generally cloudy, cold and snowy, but are changeable and include frequent thaws and rain, as well. Snow covers the ground usually from Christmas into early March, but a period when the ground is bare is also not uncommon. Over half of the annual snowfall comes from "lake effect" snows and is very localized. Spring comes slowly to western New York. The ice pack on Lake Erie does not usually go away until mid April and the lake remains chilly through most of May. Summers are pleasant, with warm temperatures and moderate humidity. Autumn is very nice, but brief in the Niagara Falls area. The first frost can be expected in late September over interior sections, but not until mid October in the Buffalo metro area.
