Well, again, the upside is you'll probably be able to fish a little longer into the Spring. Last year by the 3rd week of April, we were pretty much done with Steelhead (which is way early). The cabin fever is particularly bad this year with the extreme cold. If it weren't for that, it wouldn't seem so bad.

From what I hear there's some open water here and there, but for the most part thing's are still mostly frozen. I saw some pics two days ago of some smaller tribs that were almost frozen from bank to bank. I fished a bigger stocked stream in PA yesterday and today that had some shelf ice in places which wasn't an issue at all, plenty fishable, but then yesterday afternoon I hit a smaller stream that was full of ice and only had little pockets of open water here and there.

I am anxiously awaiting the next big thaw/blow-out then it should be game on from there on out....

I actually saw a person on Uncle John's webcam fishing Elk Creek yesterday. East End Angler still reports all east side streams are frozen with the exception of parts of 16 Mile.

Good signs, bit of a warm up this week as well.

Let me ask, what would be your go-to flies/ patterns for the late winter/ early spring, "ice-out" conditions were about to encounter? Not trying to steal hot patterns, but just curious as to opinions.

It's been several years since I hit any tribs in Feb or March, but for me I usually went smaller in late winter and early spring and I used to see a lot of little black stoneflies.

Fell, I tended to favor buggers and leech patterns and maybe sucker spawn. Late winter and spring I'd favor nymphs, single eggs, and small sucker spawn (because that is when suckers spawn.)

Water clarity also entered into this. Once the water levels picked up, I'd go back to the buggers, etc...

Any further news on Ohio tribs? Looks like elk cleared itself out today. Any word if the Connie did too? I can't tell from the gauges? I'm dying to get out!

Conny's very high just like everything else, and it'll probably have a big ice jam on the lower stretches(like everything else).

I'm planning on hitting some non-steelhead streams in PA this weekend, but if that doesn't work out or if I change my mind I'm thinkin' of checking out a few smaller streams in Ohio for chrome if fishable.

Usually take a spring trip this weekend each year, but decided to postpone it for two weeks.
