Lake Russell Fishing Report November 2013
Russell: Level: 0.6 feet low. Temperature: 65 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “There is a lot of schooling activity going on right now in the creeks with the bait in their fall transition. Most of the bass are small spots, but there is an occasional largemouth mixed in with the bigger spotted bass. You can catch some fish on the crankbait right now, but the most reliable pattern is the drop shot in the rocks, timber or brush in the areas where you see the schooling fish. They seem to be keying in on the smaller threadfin shad, so use smaller baits, and work them fairly quick to get a reaction bite. I am still catching a few bigger on a Carolina-rigged Zoom lizard in the deeper brush and timber at the mouths of the creek. On the bright, sunshine days, the smaller spots are abundant and seem to be biting better as they feed up for winter, and I expect this to only improve as we go into November.”
