The lakes are thawing out fast with this warm weather.  Warm rain today should take care of most of what is left.  Anglers are fishing some of the open water on Hamilton and Beechwood and doing well with trout.  Powerbait, wax worms, and minnows are all working.  Keep in mind that trout can only be harvested till the end of the month.  Hamilton, Beechwood, and Lyman Run are all open to year round fishing, but trout cannot be harvested from March 1st until the season opener on April 15th.  Consider this when rigging up and use tackle that will minimize any injuries to the fish.
