Conditions : Lake Russell: Bass: Fair to good. Guide Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) reports that he is catching good numbers of small to medium-sized spotted bass fishing a drop shot, and fish are starting to move deeper. To target largemouth anglers should head to the backs of the creeks. Schooling activity continues to pick up.

Crappie: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) reports that some nice crappie continue to be caught slow-trolling minnows around timber.

Catfish: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that channel catfish can be caught off deeper points on cut herring.

Striped Bass: Slow to fair. Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) reports that fish have scattered out and pulling free-lines is the best way to find them.
