                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 Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

     Trout fishing has slowed from great to just average, but should improve with Wednesday’s plant. The biggest trout of the week belonged once again to L. C. Chou of Escondido weighing 7.40#s. It was caught on powerbait along Senior Shoreline. Boat Dock Cove and parts of Senior Shoreline have seen the most fish. Green powerbait, inflated nightcrawlers, and salmon eggs have been the most productive baits.

     Catfish are still biting throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a doughbait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.

      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.
