Conditions : Lake Russell: Bass: Good. Guide Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) reports that largemouth at all three stages of the spawn can be caught on Russell, while spotted bass seem to be mostly pre-spawn. Both moving baits and soft plastics will catch fish in the shallows.

Crappie: Good. Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) reports that the better crappie have now spawned, but the bulk of the fish are still in relatively shallow water where they can be caught on minnows and jigs.

Striped Bass: Fair. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that good numbers of striper are mid-way up the rivers, and they will take live herring presented on free lines and planer boards.

Catfish: Fair. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that catfish can be caught around rip-rap on cut herring.
