Lake Russell Fishing Report June 2012

GON Staff | May 31, 2012

Russell: Level: 9.3 feet below full pool. Temp: 72 to 78 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Kerry Partain reports, “The fishing has been getting better the last few weeks as the fish begin to transition into the summer pattern. The bass have been keying on long points and humps with occasional schooling activity. I like to throw the Zoom Super Fluke in all these areas until noon, especially if I see a few fish busting. 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 largemouths have been hard to locate. The water temperature has been fluctuating a lot with the unseasonably warmer weather earlier in the year followed by cooler days and nights recently. On the cooler days, the fish seem to be located in 10 feet or less and in 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. As the water warms above the high 70s, I look for the fish on my Lowrance electronics and drop shot a Zoom Finesse worm.”
