Permits and boat rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. Currently we are credit/debit only. Facial coverings are required when purchasing a fishing permit or when entering or exiting the boats or boat dock area. We do not sell fishing licenses so anglers must acquire them elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military every Saturday. We are open weekends only until December 14th.The lake will return to seven days a week at that time.

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.

Summer seems to have finally departed for good. The arrival of fall weather typically ushers in an increase in feeding activity with the larger catfish. A weekend outing aimed toward landing a monster whiskerfish could be well timed. Lake Wohlford cats are partial to shrimp, cut mackerel, and chicken liver.

Small to medium sized bass can be found around structure. Shad raps, crawdads, and dark colored plastics do well with the bass.

Crappie fishing is best in the early morning. Crappie prefer live golden shiners or mini-jigs.

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.
