Lake Russell Fishing Report – April 2024

GON Staff | March 27, 2024

Russell: Level: 0.4 over 475. Temp: 58-64 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear on the main lake and stained in creeks.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing is on fire, and you can catch them on a variety of baits all over the lake right now. We have been catching a lot of prespawn bass on main-lake points, humps and shoals in 10 to 20 feet of water using a shaky head with Zoom Magnum Swamp Crawler or Trick Worm. There are also some big fish moving shallow to spawn in the pockets, and you can catch them on Blade Runners with Zoom Flukes early or Texas-rigged Trick Worms and lizards throughout the day. If you are looking to get some big bites, try using the Southern Hook Lures glide baits and the Bite Size Herring Swimmer because they are some big-bass catchers. There are also some fish being caught in the creeks around wood, rocks and grass on crankbaits, spinnerbaits or ChatterBaits tipped with the new Zoom Shimmer Shad. As we head into April, I always look for the blueback herring spawn because this is some awesome fishing and the best time to throw my favorite bait, which is the Zoom Super Fluke.”
