• Anglers fishing Lake Erie's tributaries have been picking up steelhead, mostly on Elk and Walnut creeks, on pink eggs, shiners or minnows and chartreuse crystal meth flies. The warming weather is expected to bring the streams up, however, so the fishing might get more difficult.

• The warm weather has brought the fishing at Greenlick Lake to a stop, as there's no open water yet no ice strong enough to support anglers.

• Bridgeport Dam is likewise unfishable because of unsafe ice.

• Anglers on the Allegheny River have starting picking up a few more fish in recent days, according to reports. Those using shiner sand minnows reportedly have been taking smallmouth bass and a few walleyes.

• A few anglers were ice fishing at Northmoreland Lake earlier in the week and reportedly were getting panfish. But deteriorating ice conditions may have put an end to that.

• On the Ohio River, fishing pressure has been relatively light, but those fishing near the mouths of Montour and other creeks and near the locks have been getting a few smallmouth bass and drum.

• Crappies and bluegills were being caught through the ice at Pymatuning Lake, according to reports. Small minnows and jigs tipped with maggots have been accounting for most of the fish caught.
