Lake Russell Sponsored by

Water Condition

Conditions : Lake Russell: •Black Bass: Very good. Spotted bass are bunched up in 18-25 feet of water around crappie brush piles, and they are feeding so aggressively that they are running off most of the other fish. Look for schools of bait on your depth finder before choosing an area to fish, and then lower a drop shot rig baited with either a medium minnow or a four inch finesse worm to the bottom.

•Catfish: Fair. Some good channels are suspended around shad schools in 18-25 feet of water and he has occasionally picked them up bass and crappie fishing. To target catfish specifically try anchoring cut blueback herring on the bottom in 15-20 feet of water.
