Water Conditions: Lake Lanier’s water level is holding well. Currently we are at 1,071.42 feet which is 0.42 feet above the normal full pool of 1,071 feet. Lake surface temperatures have fallen slightly and are in the lower to mid-80s. The main lake and lower lake creeks mouths are clear to stained. The upper lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are also clear to stained. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river below Buford Dam at 770-945-1466. Bass: Lake Lanier’s bass population has started to sense the shorter days and milder air temperatures, and fishing is starting to take a turn for the better. That being said, most reports still indicate the bite has been slower than most anglers prefer.
