Lake Russell Fishing Reports – July 2020
Russell: Level: Full pool. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing has still been slow for the most part with a few big bass being caught late in the evenings. Typically this time of year the bass are bunched up in schools of bait, but they seem to still be scattered from shallow to deep and hard to pattern. We have been catching a few better fish on crankbaits and jigs around main-lake points and timber near deeper water. For numbers of fish, the spotted bass are biting drop shots and Carolina rigs with a Zoom Finesse worm. As the water begins to warm up in July, the big largemouth should start setting up on their summer patterns, and you can catch them in the evenings and at night with a Texas-rigged Zoom Mag II, Ol Monster or the new Mag U-Tail worm.”
