View Full Version : Navasota River
<p>I used to fish the Navasota some years back and was wondering if anyone had fished it recently. We usually entered in the river at Lake Limestone, and headed up river. We always caught bass, and the crappie fishing was great, so if anybody has any info., I would apperciate it.</p>

<p>Never heard of it man, where is it located? Is it day trips or for overnighters?</p>

I might have to look this one up as I have never heard of it either. Of course, I am located in the southeast but I usually have the most notable rivers for most all states memorized but just never heard of this one. Sounds fishy though!

<p><blockquote>The Navasota River rises northeast of Mount Calm in southeastern Hill County (at 31°48? N, 96°52? W) and flows southeast for 125 miles, crossing Limestone County and serving as the county line between Leon and Robertson, Madison and Brazos, and Brazos and Grimes counties before reaching its mouth on the Brazos River, six miles southwest of Navasota in southwestern Grimes County (at 30°20? N, 96°09? W). The river is dammed at various points to form Lake Mexia, Springfield Lake (in Fort Parker State Recreation Areaqv), Joe Echols Lake, Lake Groesbeck, Lake Limestone, and Martin Lake. Tributaries of the river include Big, Little Cedar, Sand, Bowman, Panther, and Holland creeks. The river traverses flat to rolling terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.</blockquote></p><p>At low level stage:<br />

Thanks for the research Broken Paddle. Looks like a cool little flow.
