Lake Russell Fishing Report November 2016
Russell: Level: 2 feet below full pool. Temp: Upper 60s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “This is a great time to be on the lake with cooler temperatures, and the fish are biting. Right now you can catch them on a variety of different baits and presentations, so just tie on your favorite lure and start fishing. You can catch them shallow on spinnerbaits, crankbaits and jerkbaits or deep on Carolina-rigged worms, jigs and a drop shot. The key is to locate the baitfish and be around when the bass are feeding. This time of year it’s not unusual to catch a lot of fish, and it only gets better later in the month as the bass bunch up with the baitfish. Once the water cools into the 50s, a jigging spoon will be another bait you can add to the arsenal as the fish move a little deeper in the creeks and ditches.”
