Conditions : Lake Russell: •Bass: Good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that spotted bass fishing is strong on Lake Russell right now. Most of the fish are being caught in larger coves off the main channel in 20-25 feet of water. Drop shot rigs are working very well; artificial lure fishermen will want to use soft plastic worms on them, but medium minnows are also working very well. Some days schooling activity can be found, and spotted bass can be seen running shad on the surface. For these fish it is hard to beat a Pop-R with a crappie jig on a leader behind it. Largemouth bass can be found up the creeks in the same areas where Wendell's boat has been catching crappie in 10-15 feet of water around threadfin shad schools. ¼ ounce Rattle Traps in blue and silver colors are the best bet.

•Crappie: Good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that crappie can be found up the creeks around brush in 15-20 feet of water. Minnows fished about 5-8 feet below the surface have been most effective. Wendell’s boat has been catching fish on drop shot rigs as well as slip float rigs.
