                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 lake will remain open seven days a week until after Labor Day when we will close on weekdays and remain open   on weekends only for the duration of the fall.

     The final catfish plant of the summer took place yesterday morning and should provide excellent conditions for the first week of August. Either end of the lake yields good opportunities for catching catfish. Cut mackerel and chicken liver are the top baits for cats. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that is excellent for catfish.

   The bass can be found lurking around structure and respond best to crawdads, shad raps, or dark colored plastics.

    Crappie generally prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners. Bluegill are more plentiful than in years past and have been highly visible in the shallows.

    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.
