Since temperatures have gotten cooler and the Smith Lake water levels have dropped, the boating activity on Lewis Smith Lake has slowed just as it does every year. Even though you might not want to get out in a boat now, the Fall and Winter months are great times of the year for purchasing lakefront property on Smith Lake. The lake will fluctuate at least 14 feet each year and the water levels are at the lowest in these off season months. These lower water levels will allow a potential buyer to see a property when the water is at a worst case scenario. A buyer can see if the property will keep year round water or will dry during these months. The shoreline is also completely exposed allowing a potential buyer to see if a retaining wall will be required or if a boatdock will touch the ground.

Most vacant land shoppers take advantage of the water fluctuation and look at these properties during the off season. If you like the property during this time period, you will love it when the water levels reach the high mark in the Spring!
With interest rates low and water levels low, now is the time to invest in Smith Lake real estate!
Lewis Smith Lake is navigable year round even with this water fluctuation. Some sloughs and coves will dry, but the main channels stay deep year round. Smith Lake has many boat launches and marinas open year round for easy access to Smith Lake's beautiful waters.
