Conditions : Lake Russell: •Perch: Very good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that perch fishing remains very strong, with white and yellow perch mixed in with other predatory species around the big schools of bait. Minnows fished just off the bottom are working best. Some very large perch have been caught around timber.

•Striped bass: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that the best pattern has been casting Alabama rigs under the birds, which has usually meant over deep water on the main channel. Fish will also take free-lined herring or shiners fished in the same areas. The bite has definitely been better on the lower end of the lake than up the lake, and the lower end of the Rocky River has been particularly strong. Most of all, though, be sure to follow the birds and fish in the areas where they are diving.
