Lake Russell Fishing Report – July 2008
Russell: Level: Down 1.4 feet below full pool. Temp: High 80s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Fair, according to tournament angler Trad Whaley. “It took 14 pounds to win the night tournament last week, and it’s typically been taking only 11 to 12 pounds. The standard right now is Carolina rigs and big worms fished through brush in 20 to 23 feet of water in the clear water, and 16 to 18 feet deep in the rivers. It’s a scattered catch. There are a few fish shallow in the morning on topwater, but it only lasts a minute or two. At night fish the poles with a Spot Remover and a Trick Worm, and you can catch all the spotted bass you want,” Trad said.
