-- Ice anglers have been fishing High Point Lake with some success, pulling bass and northern pike out on minnows and shiners.

-- There's less activity at Lake Wilhelm in M.K. Goddard State Park. With about 12 inches of snow on the ground, the lake has just three inches of ice, said a spokesman at Fergie's Bait and Tackle in Sandy Lake, and that's limiting the fishing.

-- Likewise, Presque Isle Bay is frozen over but also covered in snow, making it difficult to gauge ice thickness. Few anglers had been out early in the week as a result.

-- Crooked Creek Lake is likewise frozen over, but there's been no one out fishing it yet, said Mike Goodman of Goodman's Bait and Tackle in Ford City.

-- Anglers have been able to get onto Cranberry Glade Lake, according to a Fish and Boat Commission report. Largemouth bass and panfish are being caught.

-- A few anglers were on Pymatuning Lake earlier this week, but reports of catches have been spotty, said Patty Poff of Poff's Place in Espyville.

-- Somerset Lake has seen virtually no fishermen this week.

-- Glendale Lake in Prince Gallitzin State Park has a reported six inches of ice, and anglers there have been pulling out walleyes and yellow perch using shiners, minnows, wax worms, and maggots, according to a spokesman at Shomo's Gun Shop in Fallentimber.

-- Laurel Hill Lake has not yet seen many ice fishermen, said John Dressler of Red's Bait Shop in Acme.

-- Lake Erie's tributary streams were all but frozen over early in the week and are expected to be completely covered over by the weekend.
