LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN 7 INCHES, 85 DEGREES AND CLEAR

Bass fishing is fair but it’s off shore time as the fish go to the usual summer pattern. Top water Chug Bugs are still working early off the points and in the mouth of the larger coves. Fish the upper end around Pickens Creek and look for some schoolers. In the very back of Pickens Creek and at the bridge at Sanders Ferry there are all spots. Use the flukes and the 85 Sammy and anything is shad patterns. Beaver Dam Creek from the mouth to about midway back is still producing nice bass. Early in the morning start of with the top water Chugs and alternate with suspending Shad Raps in the natural shad color. One substitute for the RS shad rap will be the no.5 jointed Shad Rap. Either one is producing but make sure you throw the natural shad color. Work the islands and all the points at the mouth of Beaver Dam and even up the Savannah under the RR bridge for about a mile. No need to travel any further than a couple of miles from the 72 ramp for some good fishing. Later in the day, many anglers are relying on soft plastics like Zoom finesse worms. Rig them on a 3/16 ounce bullet weight Texas rig on a medium heavy rod, 6'6" or 7ft in length, and 12lb. test line. Ten pound can be substituted for the twelve. Isolate targets like large rocks and wood when throwing the Texas rig.
