With continuing rain, the CORPS is still pulling a lot of water. The lake is 1,072.23, or 1.23 feet above the normal full pool of 1,071, while lake-surface temperatures are in the upper 80s. The main-lake and lower-lake creeks mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are slightly stained to muddy. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam by calling 770-945-1466. If the CORPS is pulling water, fish elsewhere.
