Conditions : Lake Russell: Bass: Fair to good. Guide Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) and Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) report that bass are setting up in a typical summer pattern where they can be caught in 20-40 feet of water around depth changes as well as off main lake points. Drop shot rigs, Spot Removers, and deep-diving crankbaits will all catch fish.

Catfish: Very good. Guide Jerry Kotal reports that channel catfish are scattered across the lake and feeding very well on cut herring as well as catalpa worms.

Crappie: Very good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports strong numbers of crappie as well as big fish are being caught around brush in 15-18 feet on worms, and 35-70 fish trips has been the norm.

Striped Bass: Slow. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that striper fishing will get better soon but for now pulling free-lined herring in the mid-lake is the best bet.
