Conditions : Lake Russell: •Striped bass: Fair. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that striper are traditionally found on both ends of the lake at this time of year, but unfortunately fishing in the Hartwell Tailrace has been pretty spotty. Some fish have been caught up there but a lot of anglers have also been skunked. The best pattern is probably to fish the lower end near Russell Dam with down-lined herring 30-40 feet deep in the thermocline. On the upper end it is more of a free-line pattern.

•Crappie: Fair. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that crappie can be found around brushpiles in 20-25 feet of water. Fish are suspending about 10-12 feet down and minnows are the best way to target them.
