Pretty much the whole lake is stained but it’s much better than it was, particularly in terms of floating trash, and morning surface water temperatures are about 74 or 75 degrees.
Lake Russell water levels are well above full pool to 474.49 (full pool is 475.00) and rising fast after recent rains.They have had 5 inches of rain already and are expected to get 3-4 more inches, and so water clarity is dropping fast.In the backs of the creeks to about halfway out it’s already getting pretty bad.Morning surface water temperatures are in the mid-70s.
Monsoon conditions are unlikely to put the bass on the bottom, and so Guide Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) reports
