Lake Russell Fishing Report June 2011

GON Staff | May 26, 2011

Russell: Level: 0.3 feet below full pool. Temp: High 72-78 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Kerry Partain reports, “The fishing has been good in the mornings, but the bite seems to slow in the afternoon hours. I have been fishing topwater early and then switching to a Zoom Super Fluke or Pulse Jig as the sun rises over the tree tops. The bass have been keying on shoals and long points with occasional schooling activity. Later in the day, the fish are moving out on the ends of the points and can be caught on a shaky head or Carolina-rigged Trick Worm. We have been catching some spotted bass in the 2- to 4-lb. range, but the big largemouth kicker fish have been hard to locate. The water temperature has been fluctuating a lot with the cooler weather followed by unseasonably hot days. On the cooler days the fish seem to be located in 10 feet or less and 10 to 20 feet on the hotter days. Later in the month you can expect the bass to reposition on the deep drops of the points and humps toward the main lake.”
