Lake Lanier is over three quarters of a foot over full pool. The lake is 1,071.82 or .82 feet above the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures have risen into the mid 60’s and will rise up to 70 degrees or higher in the shallower pockets on sunny afternoons. Main lake and lower lake creeks mouths are clear to slightly stained. The upper lake creeks and pockets are stained to very stained and the rivers are stained to very stained. The Chattahoochee River below Buford Dam is clear. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river by calling 770-945-1466. Bass fishing has been steady and there are plenty of bass up shallow where they are easier to catch. The same pre-spawn and spawning methods are continuing to work well, but post spawn techniques are starting to come into play.
