It’s just mid-December and winter is here in full force already. Hardwater fanatics are anticipating early ice. They could be right. Right now, Steelhead are the main game in town and there are many fish in the Erie tributaries. Allegheny River and French Creek spitting out walleye and northern pike. Most boats are winterized and skim ice increases daily on inland lakes. Looks like the options for January and February are going to be either Ice Fish or Go South.
