Lake Lanier Fishing Report: Patience key during slow spell

Lake Lanier’s water level is up slightly again from last week at 1,066.23, or 4.77 feet below our normal full pool of 1,071. When spring rains arrive, we should get back to a normal pool quickly. Main lake surface temperatures remain in the upper 40s. The main lake and creeks mouths are mostly clear. The creeks, pockets and rivers are clear to slightly stained, while the Chattahoochee River is clear. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river by calling 770-945-1466. Bass fishing has been a little slow both literally and figuratively. That being said, the patient angler can score a limit if they slow down their lures and target high-percentage areas. Soft plastics, jigs, drop shots, crank baits and jerk baits have all been in my rotation of tackle.
