• Anglers have been fishing over freshly stocked trout in the delayed harvest section of Pine Creek, downstream of the abandoned railroad bridge, according to a Fish and Boat Commission report. There was no word on catches.
• Likewise, anglers have been fishing the delayed harvest section of Buffalo Creek in Armstrong County. Nymphs, woolly bugger, glo-bugs and small bucktail jigs were all taking fish.
• The fishing has been scattered on the Allegheny River. Those fishing in the Kittanning area have not been having much success, according to reports. But some anglers fishing farther upriver were getting walleyes before the season closed Thursday. One musky was caught near the mouth of Mahoning Creek.
• Conditions have slowed the fishing at Lake Arthur, where there has been little in the way of open water and ice too thin to support anglers, according to one report.
• Anglers have been catching some trout at Harbor Acres Lakes, which remains open to catch-and-release fishing through opening day of trout season.
• Anglers fishing the Beaver River with creek chubs were getting some walleyes, according to a Fish and Boat Commission report.
• The fishing has reportedly been slower on the Ohio River.
• Anglers have been getting some trout at Upper Twin Lake, also on a catch-and-release basis, using maggots and wax worms. A few panfish have also been reported.
• A few fishermen have been targeting Green Lick Dam, but there's been no word on catches.
• The Yough River has been running high and muddy, limiting the fishing there.
• Raccoon Creek Lake in Beaver County has been giving up trout to catch-and-release fishermen using Powerbait, wax worms and meal worms.
