Reservoir Description

Lake Naconiche is an impoundment of Naconiche and Telesco creeks, tributaries of the Attoyac Bayou in the Neches River Basin. The lake was constructed by the County of Nacogdoches for recreation and flood control. This reservoir has a surface area of 692 acres at conservation pool (348 feet msl), a shoreline length of 13.1 miles, and an average depth of 13 feet. Access is available with a two lane boat ramp and two ADAapproved fishing piers. Bank access is adequate. Lake Naconiche was impounded in 2009 and will open for fishing in September 2012.

Management History

Fish stockings began in 2009 and included threadfin shad, channel catfish, bluegill, Florida largemouth bass, and white and black crappie. Largemouth bass harvest will be regulated with an 18-inch minimum length limit. All other sport fish will be regulated with statewide regulations. Hydrilla was documented in 2009 and current coverage is 15% of the reservoir surface area.
