FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Lake Nasworthy is an old shallow reservoir. There are a few areas of rip-rap and some rocks, but most of the structure is mud bank. The majority of the cover in the reservoir consists of bulrushes and alligator weed along the shoreline. TPWD has worked with local partners to install PVC fish attracting structures at selected sites within the lake. See online fish attractor map
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Catfish and white bass fishing is good. Crappie and largemouth bass also provide good fishing most of the time. Several sunfish species provide fair fishing. Red drum are no longer stocked in the lake.
TIPS & TACTICS
"Dabbling" is very effective for catching largemouth bass in the bulrushes. "Dabbling" is the technique of using a long stout fishing rod to gently lower and jig and trailer into the water around to the bulrushes. The angler then gently lifts and drops the bait a few inches. If a fish does not strike the bait, the angler then moves the bait over a few inches to a couple of feet and works the bait again. Crappie are caught using minnows and jigs around bridge and dock pilings. Catfishes are caught on live or prepared baits throughout the reservoir. Sunfish are caught with small baits in the alligator weeds along the rip rap. White bass are caught on live and artificial baits throughout the reservoir.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water stained; 51 degrees. 0.80’ low. Black bass are fair among banks with vegetation on crankbaits, worms, and spinners. Crappie are good on jigs, slowly fishing brush, timber, and creek entrances. White bass are fair on small crankbaits finding the correct depth. Catfish are fair on live and prepped baits throughout the lake.
