LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 70’S
Bass fishing is fair. Spotted bass fishing is the best right now. Fire tiger is the color to use in this stained water. Bass are biting the Fat Rap and the Rapala DT6 in this color. Up in Beaverdam Creek, the spots are moving up and down the water column holding tight to cover in the shallows. During this transition period, they will suspend on the channel ledges in seven to ten feet of water. Use the jerk baits and the jointed Shad Raps and Husky Jerk Baits. The #7 Rapala Shad Raps will catch the suspended fish. Work the shallow wood with 1/4 ounce jig ands add a little scent and fish them slowly.
