    All streams have been iced up thick for the last 3 weeks anyways, you shoud be good to go by the last of March if the wether doesnt do a 180 on us, Im itching to go!! ( SW Ohio) as is about 500 of my fishing buddies, when the ice jams break free, the first high water event will bring a crap load of fish in and everyone is just waiting for that to happen before they head up. It will be as crowded as ever with so many folks having to put the season onhld for the last month
    Good luck

    I live in North Eastern Pa and as of today thier is a heavy snow. I imagine that the ice is still pretty thick up that way. It might do you well to wait till the end of March. But, YES I love to go Steelhead fishing! I use the eggsac and a light presentation or parachute flies for fun to get a rise! Good luck Brother andd have fun!

    You should do well unless the water is up. If it is just hit a smaller (mile) creek.
