Lake Russell Fishing Report December 2015
Russell: Level: Full. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Stained in the creeks and river, clearer toward the dam.
Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing has been good considering the weather conditions. With the recent rains, there has been a good shallow bite, especially for largemouth, and you can catch them on a spinnerbait or crankbait. There has also been an increase in schooling activity in the creeks with the overcast days, and you can catch bass on a variety of topwater baits. As the weather cools and the lake begins to clear up, the baitfish should begin to bunch up in the deeper water around creeks and major pockets. Once you locate the baitfish, you can catch the bass on a variety of lures. For the deeper fish, I like to use a drop shot and a jigging spoon, and for shallower fish, I like a Carolina rig or a jig.”
