Water clarity is about average for lake Nacogdoches (around 3 foot of visibility). The water north of the power lines has been a little stained after some of the rain the area has been getting. The fishing has been great for largemouth both shallow and deep. The lake has plenty of vegetation in it right now. Lily pads, hydrilla, and pepper grass surround the lake for the most part. The further north you go on the lake the more vegetation you will begin to see. Locals have reported catching fish on moving baits like lipless crank baits and chatter baits over vegetation. Others have also reported catching fish off of deep-water structure with big worms and Carolina rigs. Staying in the 18-22 foot range seems to be the best for the deep water guys. It looks like we will be getting some rain throughout the rest of the week and next week as well. The temperatures are slowly starting to decrease and the pressure will be changing. This will help the fishing for sure, so don’t be scared to get a little wet! Fishing in pre-frontal/storm conditions is some of the best fishing you will get. Good luck and tight lines!
