Lake Nocona, Texas

Lake Nocona or Farmer's Creek Reservoir was begun in 1959 and completed in October 1960. It is formed by a dam on Farmer's Creek about nine miles (14 km) northeast of Nocona, Texas in northeastern Montague County and is owned and operated by North Montague County Water Supply District.

The lake was constructed for municipal, industrial, and mining purposes. The elevation of the lake is 827 feet above sea level; it has a capacity of 25,400 acre feet, a maximum depth of 80 feet, and a surface area of 1,470 acres. The drainage area above the dam in 94 square miles.


The Lake is well stocked with largemouth bass - record 13.4 lb (1997), crappie - record 1.81 lb (1999), blue and channel catfish - record 13.13 lb (1995), and hybrid striped bass - record 11.3 lb (2005). Lake Nocona is classified as the fourth-best bass fishing lake in Texas. There is standing timber up lake in in Farmers Creek. Although amount vary, this lake usually has around 100 acres of milfoil and 25 acres of floating pondweed, as well as many boat houses. These features furnish excellent cover for fish. Rip-rap along the dam provides excellent habitat for bass and sunfishes. In early spring and winter, big bass can be caught deep on rocky ledges off the face of the dam.
