         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 motor boats to seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

     Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Friday’s plant should improve what was already a healthy catfish bite. Senior Shoreline, Boat Dock Cove, and Oakvale Cove have all been having good success with stink-bait, cut mackerel, or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works wonders on catfish, as well as carp.

     Small to medium sized bass can be found lurking around structure. They bite most in the early mornings and late in the afternoon. The bass respond well to crawdads, crank baits, or dark colored plastics.

     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.
