Lake Russell Fishing Report December 2019

GON Staff | November 22, 2019

Russell: Level: 2 feet low. Temp: 60 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass on Russell are feeding heavy on shad right now, and December should be one of the best months to catch them. Most of the bait and bass seem to be in the pockets and creeks. The fish we are catching right now are around small pods of bait, so keep a close eye on your electronics. Once I mark bait or fish on my Lowrance, I will use a drop shot or a jigging spoon and see which one the fish want because it changes throughout the day. You can also catch some bigger bass this time of year on a jig or a Fish Head Spin with a Zoom Fluke. As the water cools to 50 degrees in December, I will concentrate more on the jigging spoon in the creeks or ditches on the main lake.”
