Conditions : Lake Russell: •Bass: Good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that the largemouth and spotted bass seem to be in different stages right now, with the largemouth seemingly concentrated on spawning activity. Meanwhile, the spotted bass are feeding around the banks and points, perhaps filling up again after their spawn. Lots of spotted bass can be caught fishing scrounger heads with flukes around shallow, sloping banks with any type of cover. The herring spawn is also underway and big spotted bass can be caught fishing off points. Try throwing a blade runner-type bait with a fluke, and don’t overlook winding it through the tops of trees. The herring spawn bite should get better and better as largemouth join the spots and surface activity gets hotter.

About: - Lake Russell levels remain relatively stable throughout the year; and there is an abundance of standing timber areas and other structures that create excellent fishing opportunities. The placement of numbered marker poles has made navigation on Lake Russell easy and safe. Marker poles, which are also lighted at night, reveal how the channels run and where the ledges are. In addition, fisheries habitat improvements include the maintenance of deep water and shallow water fish attractors and felling trees into water along the shoreline. Its undeveloped shoreline offers a quiet recreation experience – one that has been described as being similar to fishing on a remote Canadian lake while being surrounded by civilization.
