Water Conditions: Lake Lanier has filled up slightly after the recent rains. Currently we are at 1,072.5 feet, or one and a half feet above the normal full pool of 1,071 feet. Lake surface temperatures are varying between the mid to uppers 80’s depending on if it’s raining or sunny. The main lake and lower lake creeks mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are stained to muddy. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466. Bass fishing has been tougher this week, even with quality electronics like the Lowrance Carbon units I will be using going forward. We have really struggled to get a lot of bites. That being said, we are catching some good ones when we do hook up.
