Conditions : Lake Russell: Bass: Good. Guides Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) and Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) report that there is a decent shallow bass bite early on topwater lures. During the day bass can be caught on live bait or soft plastics fished off mid-depth points.

Striped Bass: Very good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that solid numbers of large striper have been caught recently on free-lined herring pulled over mid-depth water away from timber.

Catfish: Fair to good. Guide Jerry Kotal reports that channel catfish can be caught in the backs of coves and cuts on cut bait.

Crappie: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that pretty good numbers of decent-sized crappie can be caught over relatively shallow brush, but the biggest fish have mostly already headed out to deeper brush.
