FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
There is standing timber uplake and in Farmers Creek. Shoreline vegetation can be found in some areas and there are many boat houses on the lake. These features furnish excellent cover for fish. Rip-rap along the dam provides excellent habitat for bass and sunfishes.
TIPS & TACTICS
Nocona is a big largemouth bass lake. Bass can be caught year-round. Spring fish are normally shallow, building nests in the cattails or under boat docks. Tube baits fished slowly can land a big bass. When fishing spawning beds, remember catch and release. She deserves the opportunity to reproduce and after all, she will be bigger next year! After the spawn, aquatic vegetation starts to grow and bass move out of the shallows to the edges of the vegetation. This is a good time to wacky worm or throw soft jerk baits. On into summer, top water baits and buzz baits will produce lots of action early and late. In winter and early spring, big bass can be caught deep on rocky ledges near the dam.

Crappie on Nocona are big and can generally be found schooled around the many boat houses and sometimes in the standing timber or up Farmers Creek. Jigs or minnows work. Catfishing for both channels and blues is best in June when the main stream or feeder branches are flowing. In summer, fish crawfish, stinkbait, or liver over windswept flats. Let the wind push your boat along as you keep the bait on the bottom. White bass fishing is best in the spring when they make a run up Farmers Creek. As with most lakes, sunfish are best caught near the bank around brush or grass, using worms under a cork.
