Lake Russell Fishing Report – October 2023

GON Staff | September 27, 2023

Russell: Level: Fluctuates between full and 2 feet below full. Temp: 78-80 degrees. Clarity: Off due to turnover.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing has been slower this month due to the lake beginning to turnover. Some areas of the lake are starting to get that brown tint and some are still normal greenish and this changes day to day. I try to stay in good water and then locate bait and bass on my Lowrance electronics. The past couple of weeks the fish have bit early in the morning and then again sometime after lunch. The best baits the last few weeks have been a drop shot with Zoom Swamp Crawler, a shaky head and a jig. As we head into October, the water will continue to turnover so some larger fish will move shallow with the bait and you can catch them on moving baits like topwater, spinnerbaits and crankbaits.”
