                 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.

     Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued at the Ranger Station. At present, unfortunately, we are limited to cash transactions only. A vending machine is on order that, when installed, will offer more payment options. We apologize for any inconvenience in this transitional period. The park will be closed weekdays beginning the day after Labor Day and throughout the fall.

     Catfish are biting throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works wonders on catfish, as well as carp.

     Bass can be found around structure. The bite is strongest in the early morning and late afternoon. Frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics are currently the best baits.

     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.
