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 Lake is closing earlier now, as the days grow shorter, please make note of the change and adjust your plans accordingly. We will re-open for weekday use at the beginning of trout season in mid-December.

Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer chicken liver, shrimp, or cut mackerel.

Crappie and Bluegill are being reported in small numbers. Crappie bite best in the early morning or late afternoon. They are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.

Small to medium sized Largemouth Bass can be found lurking around structure. Bass respond well to crawdads, crankbaits, and dark colored plastics.

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.
