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 bass bite has been good 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.

    Abundant cloud cover has provided more opportunities for crappie fishing. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.

    Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats enjoy chicken liver and cut mackerel. There is an excellent dough-bait recipe available at the ranger station upon request. We are sorry to inform you that the Wohlford Catfish Derby will not be held this summer, due to scheduling conflicts, but hopefully will return next year even bigger and better.

     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.
