Avec plaisir, but give me some time to prepare the data. Actually, there seem to be at least three layers of IE hydronyms in Poland: "generalised IE", a.k.a. "Krahe's Old European" (which presumably date back to well before the first millennium BC) , then the layer of names I had in mind when referring "Italoid IE" ("Venetic", and also "Illyrian" in Southern Poland), and finally names analysable in terms of the historically attested language groups of N Europe (Germanic, Slavic, Baltic). There is also a residue of completely obscure hydronyms, but there are very few of them and I'd hesitate to call them "pre-IE". They are just obsure -- full stop.
