Cattaraugus Discharge Pictures
***Important***This page should only be used as a general reference guide.  We do not/will not recommend any
specific water level for recreational use.  It is the responsibility of the creek's user to determine if it is safe to enter the water
for whatever purpose.  This is a very large stream and can be dangerous at times, please treat it with respect!!
The following pictures were taken at different gauge readings to help fishermen associate the gauge levels with the stream's
physical condition.  If the discharge graph below is not up-to-date, click the USGS link to view the current creek level and
then match it  with the corresponding stream picture below to get a GENERAL idea of what the Catt will be like.
1.  Cattaraugus at 250 cfs (about 1.7 ft)
upstream of Versailles
2.  Cattaraugus at about 2.2 ft, in Zoar Valley. The two left-hand pictures are the
same areas in picture set #6.
The presence of  ice makes it hard to interpret the USGS gauge readings.  If the
gauge reports the station is being
affected by ice, be ready to encounter conditions similar to the pictures above.
