Lake Russell Fishing Report – June 2023

GON Staff | May 24, 2023

Russell: Level: 0.6 feet below 475. Temp: 70-78 degrees. Clarity: Clear on the main lake but the creeks are muddy.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing has been slow as the bass have spawned and are beginning to filter out to the secondary points and main-lake points. Early in the morning a topwater bait and a Zoom Super Fluke are the go-to lures, especially if there is some shad spawning. When activity slows during the day, a Carolina-rigged Zoom Lizard and a shaky head with a Zoom Trick Worm will continue to be productive in these same areas. There will still be some fish shallow in the creeks, and a Texas-rigged worm or jig around blowdowns and timber is good for some largemouth. Right now the fish seem to be scattered everywhere, but as we head into June, look for them to concentrate more as they begin to set up on the summer pattern around the main-lake points.”
