Permits and boat rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. We are credit/debit only, no cash transaction. We do not sell fishing licenses so anglers must obtain them elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering half price motor boats to seniors (60+) on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military every Saturday.

In order to protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels there is a ban on private watercraft 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.

The rains continue to come and the water is quite stained, but they are still catching trout along Senior Shoreline and in Oakvale Cove. Big fish of the week belonged to Greg Edwards who caught a 9.40# trout on rainbow powerbait at the east buoys. Scented baits or flashy lures are working best.

Catfish can be found throughout the lake and prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver.

Crappie are beginning to be caught in modest numbers near shore at Bass Point and Crappie Rock. They respond best to mini-jigs or live golden shiners.

Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. Contest winners must legally catch their fish at Lake Wohlford and have it weighed in by a Wohlford Ranger on our scale. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
