Lake Lanier is presently at 1,072, or exactly one foot above the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures remain in the mid-80s. The main-lake and lower-lake creeks mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are slightly stained to stained. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam by calling 770-945-1466. I am happy to announce my new sponsor, Lowrance Electronics. I will be operating a 16-inch Lowrance Carbon on the helm and a 1-foot Lowrance on the bow. These units are awesome, and they will become essential tools for catching fish.
