FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Habitat in Lake Naconiche consists of aquatic vegetation (mainly hydrilla and lily pads) and standing/submerged timber. Largemouth bass are typically found around vegetation edges, points, and creek channels.

Fish-attracting structures have been used to create artificial habitat in this reservoir. The attractors were placed by TPWD in cooperation with Nacogdoches County and the Reservoir Fish Habitat Partnership. See online

ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Fish stockings began in 2009 and included channel catfish, bluegill, Florida largemouth bass, and white and black crappie. The most popular sport fish at Lake Naconiche is the largemouth bass. Bass 15 to 20 inches in length are very abundant, some exceed 6 pounds, and an excellent fishery exists. Growth rates of largemouth bass are fast, so the population will continue to improve and abundance of fish over 6 pounds will increase over the next few years. An excellent crappie population is also present in the reservoir. Initial stockings of channel catfish were successful, and many of these fish exceed 4 pounds. Sunfish are present in high numbers and provide good fishing, especially for youth or inexperienced anglers.
TIPS & TACTICS
During the fall, winter, and spring months, largemouth bass are active for longer periods of the day and are typically found in shallow water. A variety of baits and techniques will work during these times. When fish are active, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and swim jigs worked over the vegetation will catch bass. During the hot summer, the bite usually slows and fish activity is usually concentrated during early morning, late evening, and at night. Topwater baits are good choices during low light conditions. As the sun rises, most bass are concentrated in or around vegetation edges, or seek refuge on deep creek channel ledges. During this time, plastic worms, jigs, creature baits, and Carolina rigs are the preferred baits.

Crappie can be caught all year using jigs, small spinners, and live minnows fished along the vegetation edges, creek channels, and bridge pilings. Sunfishes, especially bluegill and redear sunfish, can be caught year-round but fishing peaks during the late spring or summer when fish are on their spawning beds. Small jigs, spinners, and crickets all catch sunfish.
