Dam Operating Schedule and Lake Level Info

Lay Lake is the oldest lake on the Coosa, having been created in 1914. Because there are a lot of stumps that were left in Lay Lake when it was built, it is very important to stay within the channel markers on the lake. When heading upstream, keep the red markers to your right. When heading downstream towards Lay Dam, keep the green markers on your right.
