LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN .4 FEET, 88 DEGREES AND CLEAR

Bass fishing is slow and the bass will take cover in the deeper water. These fish will only feed during peak feeding times. Check your lunar tables to find out the best times to go. Work the bait slow and make at least two casts at each location. Concentrate daily fishing areas to the mid lake area and reef markers will be a good pattern if there is any current. Up lake, rocks and wood will be fair and be sure to work the deeper water especially when the sun gets high. The bass are scattered and the high water temperatures make it tough to get a pattern. If all else fail, go to the green pumpkin lizard on a 3 foot Carolina rig and use a ¾ ounce plain egg sinker. Try the Carolina Keeper that will allow adjustments in the leader without having to cut and start over. Fish the main lake rocky points. Patience and staying focused will be the key to feeling the light bite. Don't expect a hard knock or tap but feel for that added weight while working the baits. Carry a lot of fluids for any day trip and drink a drink a bottle every 30 minutes.
