No, this is not a Russian proverb.

But you might like another proverb, which is Russian:

Еще рыба не поймана, а уже принялись уху варить.

It means:

Never fry a fish till it's caught.

I don't think that it's Russian proverb. I've never heard it.

We've got another one with the same meaning:

Что посеешь, то и пожнешь.

You reap what you sow.
