Lake Russell Fishing Report March 2014
Russell: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 50s. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Guide Bill Speers reports, “Well, it sure has been a cold winter, but as of this writing, the lake water temperature is slowly rising. The problem is Lake Russell has had so much wind and rain, the water is dingy to dirty. The good news is it is March, Mother Nature is talking to the bass, and they are on the move. Look for the larger females to move up first and early this month. Start on the first secondary point in the south-facing coves, and work your way back. I will be working the 8- to 14-foot depth. I will be working a variety of lures from a 3/8-oz. swim jig and flat-sided crankbaits to light Alabama Rigs. If we can get a good bit of clear, warm weather, the bass will move into the backs of these coves. I prefer the coves without a creek, so that the water has a chance to stay a bit clearer unless we get a series of downpours.”
