Water Conditions: Lake Lanier is presently at 1,070.32 feet, or .68 feet below the normal full pool of 1,071. Expect that to rise with this week’s rain inflow. Lake surface temperatures are right around 50 degrees. The main lake and lower lake creeks are clear in mouths, but expect some stained to muddy inflow in the backs. The upper lake and rivers are slightly stained, but expect the same muddy inflow to cloud things up after the rain. The Chattahoochee below Buford Dam is clear at the dam and muddy down past Highway 20. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at (770) 945-1466. Merry Christmas and Bass Wishes to our readers this Christmas! Count your blessings and I bet they will outweigh your troubles!
