Lake Lanier is holding almost steady at 1,071.90 or .9-feet above the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures are rising slowly into the mid to upper 80’s. The main lake and lower lake creeks mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and rivers are slightly stained to stained. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466. Bass: Hit your best area at daybreak. Cast a Sammy, Spy Bait or your favorite swim bait across the ends of long points or the shallowest areas on humps. Make several casts and pay close attention to any fish you see on sonar. You should be able to determine pretty quickly if an area is dead or alive.
