Water Condition

Conditions : Lake Russell: •Black Bass: Good. The best pattern for catching good numbers of spotted bass has been fishing drop shot rigs, spoons or minnows around schools of bait in 28-30 feet of water, particularly around brush.

•White perch: Good. Big schools of white perch can also be found around schools of baitfish, and whereas a few weeks ago the perch were significantly deeper than the largemouth they are now mixed together in the 28-30 foot range. Perch will eat spoons and minnows.

•Striped bass: Fair. Birds will provide indications of where the striper can be found, but the key to targeting striper is still to cover a lot of water with big free-lined baits. The best areas to target are the lower end from the mid-lake to the dam and up Beaverdam and the Rocky River.
