NOTE: This list may not be all inclusive of all speices present in Navarro Mills Lake.
FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Inundated timber is abundant in the upper end of the lake. However, this shallow water area can be difficult to access during low water periods. Siltation from the watershed has exacerbated this condition. Some vegetation is present in the creeks entering the north side of the lake. Emergent native plant species such as water willow, and smartweed provide a marginal fringe during high water periods. Marine naiad provides some submersed cover near Wolf Creek Park.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Navarro Mills Lake provides excellent opportunity for white crappie and catfish. However, turbid water makes angling for largemouth bass and sunfishes difficult. White bass angling is very good at times.
TIPS & TACTICS
Bass anglers should look for patches of pondweed along the north shoreline. Fish these with buzz baits or jig and eel combinations in the spring during the spawn. Catfish and crappie anglers will find live bait works best in the inundated timber in the upper end.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water clear; 74 degrees; 0.33 low. Crappie are fair on minnows around the marina, brush piles, and standing timber in 12-25’. Catfish are good with prepared bait and cut bait. White bass are good on slabs and jigging spoons in 20-30’. Black bass are fair with crankbaits, jigs, and finesse worms near docks, brush piles, and timber.
