Water Conditions: Lake Lanier has held steady but will certainly be on the rise after this week’s rains. Currently, we are at 1,071.9 or .9-foot above the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures are in the mid-80’s. The main lake and lower lake creek’s mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are slightly stained to muddy in some locations. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466. Bass: Bass fishing has been good for anglers that are adept at fishing off shore brush. The bass have been ranging from the surface on out deeper into the timber lines. This is typical Lake Lanier fishing in the summer.
