     To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is still a ban on private water craft and equipment that could have been exposed to mussels. Restricted equipment includes private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.       

     Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motorboats to seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

     The first catfish plant of the season is scheduled for this coming Wednesday and consists of 3,000 pounds of channel cats. The large initial plant combined with the warm weather should provide some dynamite fishing conditions for catfish. Chicken liver and cut mackerel are both highly productive baits. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that does well with the catfish.  The Wohlford Catfish Derby will not be held this year due to scheduling difficulties. Look for the derby to return next year.

    The bass bite has been spotty with small to medium sized bass being reported. The bass can be found near structure and respond best to crawdads, shad raps, or dark colored plastics.

    Crappie can be found in the early morning. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.

    Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
