Richard B Russell Lake fishing is one of the most popular wildlife related activities in the southeast and Lake Russell’s 540 miles of shoreline and 26,650 acres of water create an excellent playground for both the experienced and novice angler. The lake levels remain relatively stable throughout the year; and there is an abundance of standing timber areas and other structures that create excellent fishing opportunities. In addition, fisheries habitat improvements include the maintenance of deep water and shallow water fish attractors and felling trees into water along the shoreline. Its undeveloped shoreline offers a quiet recreation experience – one that has been described as being similar to fishing on a remote Canadian lake while being surrounded by civilization. Because of these things, the lake has developed into a quality fishery dominated by anglers fishing for largemouth bass and crappie. Other species that are commonly caught at Lake Russell include bream and catfish. Numerous recreation areas, fishing piers, and bank fishing areas provide ample fishing opportunities.
