Conditions : Lake Russell: •Striper: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that this is a transitional period for striper, and not a lot of people are targeting them right now. Fish have been on the lower end, where some should still be, but they are making their way towards the mid-lake where they will be very soon. The key to fishing for striper right now is to pull planer boards and free-lined herring in the creeks, as opposed to the main channel, and cover a lot of water.

•Catfish: Fair. Guide Jerry Kotal reports that he has not done a ton of catfishing recently. However, the fish that he has caught have been in 20-25 feet of water on the edge of the creek channel. A variety of fresh cut baits will work.
