LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN 2.8 FEET, 45 DEGREES AND STAINED

Bass fishing is fair but cold. All over the lake and spoons and jigs are the only baits getting strikes. Be sure to have the drop shot rigs with a small Bass Trix rigged and checkout any point you pass at 30 feet or less. Keep the spoons to 1/2 ounce and work the humps and old road beds all over the lake. The best tip is to keep moving until the active fish are found. It’s cold all over the lake and the bass are just not active. Watch for a warm up to get the fish moving. Slow presentations are required. Use smoke or green worms, lizards and dark jigs. Small Rat L Traps in bleeding shiner and #5 Shad Raps are fair on points on light line. And always fish and rip rap on the bridges as the sun warms this water and the shad will spawn there. Work crank baits on points the inner creek humps and old road beds all over the lake. In Beaver Dam Creek spend some time on the bridge right at the ramp. There is a lot of deep water close by and in front and behind the bridge there are huge stands of trees. Spooning and worms can make the fish bite.
