      The releases at Buford should be interesting to follow now that the lake is over 1075.6. From the COE facebook page is a list of record highs.

      1077.15 - Apr. 14th, 1964
      1076.20 - Apr. 5th, 1977
      1076.05 - Mar. 30th, 1980
      1075.99 - Apr. 15th, 1979
      1075.75 - Apr. 1st, 1976
      1075.62 - Feb. 23rd, 2019 (current reading)
      1075.43 - Dec. 31st, 2015
      I was there in 1979 and 1980. Lots of concerns back then about super-saturated dam conditions requiring daily inspections. If you see the discharge volume at the dam go way over 10,500 cfs then you know they have opened the emergency sluice. The river could go way out of its banks

        When the lake, rainfall, and releases return to normal what will be the effect on fishing?
        All fishermen are liars except you and I...and I’m not so sure about you.

          Look for trout near the Florida border.

                The debate is over. Globalwarmingclimatechange is to blame for our epic rainfall. The planet is getting hotter and squeezing all the moisture from the atmosphere. Yeah, thatís it.

                All of us must buy electric cars before itís too late.

                  Sorry Rich, but its not globalwarminglimatechange. I'm the reason for the rain. In June last year I bought a boat, and I've been getting it rigged out for fishing, particularly for stripes. And since I retired at the end of the year last year, the rain has been hanging around. If not rain, the wind has been blowing about 20mph, keeping me at home. So, I'm the reason. Sorry Folks. The buck stops here....

                    Your boat has a motor and burns fossil fuel. I bet you have a gas guzzling SUV, too.

                      HAHA. I'd say you need to sell your boat and go back to work. Take one for the team!

                        Nope, I've got a fuel efficient Subaru Forrester. Its primarily my wife's vehicle
                        I drive a 1999 Ford F150. Fossile fuel consuming 19mpg (on a good day). I'd rather drive my truck, especially long trips, than the Forrester
                        Boat, yeah, it burns gasoline too...and non-ethanol to boot.

                          Ain't gonna happen. The team can suck it up. I don't claim very many things that I deserve, but I've worked hard for this retirement. Right now, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, I've got a fresh cup of coffee. Retirement is good. I can go fishing later.

                          Y'all guys be safe out there on the reever. I'm gonna hook up the boat and go drown some minnows somewhere. I'll let you know if I need any help.

                            Looks like the inflows have decreased and water releases have caught up with the rising tide.. Now if the rain will hold off some.

                              If the water level website is correct then Lanier is at its third highest recorded level as of this morning. Do downstream residents get warned if they have to release from the emergency sluice/flood down river?
