Lake Lanier’s water level remains steady and full at 1,070.67, or 0.33 feet below the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures are in the 50s. The main lake and creeks mouths are clear to stained. The creeks, pockets and rivers are everywhere from slightly stained to very stained. The Chattahoochee River below Buford Dam is clear but will muddy up quickly if we have heavy rains. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river by calling (770)945-1466. Bass fishing: This weekend the Fishing League Worldwide pros are in town, and you can bet these guys will be catching.
