Lake Lanier is above normal pool at 1,071.86 or .86 feet above full pool of 1,071. The CORP is dropping the lake quickly and the level may have fallen even more by the time you read this report. Lake surface temperatures are around 50 degrees with some warmer water in the backs of the pockets. The colder weather should drop temperatures, but not too quickly. The water quality is improving on the lake but there are still plenty of stained areas. The lake below Browns Bridge remains clear in the in the creek mouths and stained in the backs of the creeks. The upper lake creeks are stained in the mouths and very stained in the backs and the rivers are very stained. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466.
