    LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN 1.07 FEET, CLEAR, 50S


    Bass fishing is fair. The lake is stable and clearing. Small #5 Shad Raps and McStick lures both in silver and black back on banks and wood has been fair. Cast to the sunny banks in the creeks with a Rattlin Rouge in the shad or bream color. Spinner baits with willow leaf blades in silver and goldís on the banks can draw strikes. Zoom u tail worms on a Texas or a short Carolina rig are fair in greens or smoke colors are fair but fish slowly in and around brush. The down lake fish are biting blue back Shad Raps crank baits on the points and humps. Pick a few blow throughs and run the McSticks with super long casts. Green pumpkin Zoom trick worms on a Weedless Wonder rig on 10 pound test can work all day. Just be sure to work these baits slowly as the bites are light, so watch your line.
