Lake Lanier’s water level is slightly below full pool at 1,070.86 or .14 feet above the normal full pool of 1,071. Look for that level to rise with this weekend’s forecasted rains. Lake surface temperatures are in the upper 70s. The lake has cleared over the last week from the recent algae bloom. The main lake is clear to slightly stained in the rivers and creeks.
The Chattahoochee River below Buford Dam is clear. Check generation schedules before heading out to the river at 770-945-1466.
Bass fishing has taken a turn for the better as the lake has cleared considerably from the last few weeks greenish tint. The improving water clarity has resulted in a good topwater bite early and later in the day. This same clarity has helped other moving lures to be more affective, too.
