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 (5.96 kg) (1995), and hybrid striped bass - record 11.3 lb (5.13 kg) (2005). Lake Nocona is classified as the fourth-best bass fishing lake in Texas. There is standing timber uplake and in Farmers Creek. Although amounts vary, this lake usually has around 100 acres (0.40 km2) of milfoil and 25 acres (100,000 m2) 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.
Lake Nocona offers many recreational opportunities. Facilities include a marina, lakeside RV spaces and camping grounds, and three public parks with boat ramps and fishing piers. The three public parks are Weldon Robb, Joe Benton, and Boone. All are free public access and open year-round. Additionally, the city of Nocona puts on a spectacular July 4 fireworks show at Weldon Robb Park.
