     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.    

    Catfish are being caught 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.

     The bass fishing continues to improve. Kevin Gallego of San Marcos caught and released a 9.10# Bass Sunday on a bladed swim-jig near the west buoys. Omar Martinez of Valley Center caught and released a 6.90# bass Saturday on a dark blue senko worm in Boat Dock Cove.  Bass can be found  lurking around structure. Shad raps, crawdads, and dark colored plastics are some of the best baits for catching bass.

    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.
