PERRYSBURG - Anglers itching at a shot to catch their limit of walleye are having to wait a little longer than usual this year.
Cold temperatures and high water levels have delayed the annual walleye run on the Maumee and Sandusky rivers, which usually draws a large number of fisherfolk to the waters to try their luck.
"Obviously, everything's a little behind because of all the ice we've had," said John Windau, communications specialist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
"Last week anglers were able to get into the river and start catching a few, but with the rains the river's back up and it's somewhat fishable, but it's pretty difficult to fish right now."
Indeed, the Maumee was expected to reach minor flood stage again on Monday after a bout of rain. Over the weekend, the river reached moderate flood stage - near 17.5 feet - at Grand Rapids, submerging portions of Mary Jane Thurstin State Park.

Something told Debi Konrad she needed to go to her mom's house March 25. She couldn't put her finger on it, but somehow, some way, she knew - something was very wrong.
"It's hard to describe," she said. "Something was pulling me that way."
Around 5 p.m. that cold Tuesday night, Konrad pulled her truck into her mom's driveway in Weston. Her mom had some eggs for her and suggested Konrad swing by to pick them up on the way home.
Konrad wasn't looking forward to picking up the eggs. She was tired and had a long day at work - but something stopped her from driving past.
"I went over there and noticed something in the pond. At first, I thought it was geese," she said. "And then I realized, no it's not - it's Charlie."
Charlie, Konrad's brown and black 75-pound rescued boxer, had been staying at her mother's house until she found him a permanent home.
Now, Konrad saw, the dog had fallen through the ice into 16-feet deep pond.
She slammed the truck in park and got out.

The Ohio Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals granted an evidentiary hearing Friday in the 2011 death of a toddler that sent a Perrysburg Township man to prison.
The hearing had previously been denied by the Wood County courts.
Ronald Pheils, now 21, was convicted of reckless homicide in the March 2011, death of a three-year-old boy left in his care. He was sentenced to three years in prison.
The Lucas County Coroner's Office had ruled the death a homicide related to shaken baby syndrome, and Pheils had reportedly admitted while incarcerated in the Wood County jail that he had thrown the boy up in the air while playing with him.
After a first failed appeal in 2012, Pheils filed a post-conviction petition with the trial court, presided over by Wood County Judge Alan Mayberry.
According to the decision, Pheils asserted his counsel had been ineffective in that he had not spoken with a medical expert in the case. According to the attorney, "one of the jurors he spoke to after trial told him that the lack of a rebuttal witness to the coroner's testimony was dispositive in deliberations," the decision stated.

It's 9:29 p.m. and Arielle Beachy knows in one minute, she'll be hunted down.
The BGSU junior glances around the deck of campus' Jerome Library. She can't see any zombies - yet.
The whistle blows and Beachy sprints toward fraternity row. She has two goals - find her mission's objectives and stay alive.
"It was an adrenaline rush because we wanted it done quickly," she said. "Around any corner, around any bush, there could be a zombie waiting for you."
Beachy is one of the rapidly declining "humans" in the biannual game, "BG Undead."
The game is the largest student-run organization at BGSU and lasts about a week each spring and fall semester.
