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

     Bass fishing has been good with mostly small to medium sized bass being reported. Justin Kennedy of Valley Center caught and released a 5.95# bass Saturday using a plastic worm in Boat Dock Cove. Bass can be found lingering amongst the rock piles and are vulnerable to shad raps, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.

     Catfish of all sizes can be found throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats respond well to cut mackerel or chicken liver. Drop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well on both catfish and carp.

     Crappie can be found in the early morning hours near rock piles or under the shade of a dock. Crappie are usually caught on live golden shiners or with a Crappie jig.

    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.
