LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 80’S Bass fishing is fair. The early morning periods are good with the Rapala Shad Raps and Rapala Scatter Raps along the banks. The rip rap rock is also holding fish but only until about 9:30 a.m. at the latest. After mid morning, the vast majority of the bass are being caught out in the deeper water along the main lake points with Carolina rigs. Fish from 20 to 25 feet deep with the Zoom mini lizards and 6 inch lizards in green pumpkin. A jig or Carolina rig along with six inch U Tail worms will work and add some Jack’s Juice garlic scent and a add some Spike It red dye for a little more color to these baits.

LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 80’S Bass fishing is fair. Work these three areas: Cold Creek, Beaver Dam Creek and up in the Savannah River. Texas rigged finesse worms, jigs and spot removers fished slowly will work. Rocky bluffs, points and the long run out points and old road beds are the key places to fish. Use the Rapala DT10 crank baits along the ledges and small flats just off of the channels. If the water is stained, switch to a 1/4 to 3/8 ounce white Strike King spinner bait and fish shallow. Keep the Carolina rig ready as well as the Super Fluke and be sure to use them at every stop. Water temperatures are cooling a little and the fish will soon start gearing up.
