Lake Russell Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Russell: Level: Full. Temp: Mid 70s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “Well this has been an unusual spring, and the fishing is changing daily with the weather. The bass are still spread out, so you can catch them shallow in the creeks and on the main lake or in transition areas like points and humps as they start to migrate to their summer pattern. The weather really dictates which one works best, so if it’s cloudy, windy or raining, you can catch them shallow on crankbaits and spinnerbaits around wood and rocks. If we have one of those rare warm, sunny days, the deeper fish are biting jigs, shaky heads and Carolina rigs. As the water continues to warm up, the fish will move out a little deeper on the points and timber, but if it keeps raining, don’t count out the shallow bite.”
