   To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is 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 motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

     Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued at the Ranger Station. At present we are limited to cash transactions only. We do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transitional period.

    The trout bite had been strong before the storms came and muddied the water. Jesse Tran of San Diego caught a monster trout weighing sixteen pounds on Senior Shoreline Sunday using a kastmaster. Look for fishing to pick up toward the end of this week when the storms exit and following Wednesday’s plant. Top baits are powerbait (yellow or green), jigs, or inflated night-crawlers.

     Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. Duran Saysanavong of San Diego caught & released a 9.85# bass Sunday on a swim-bait off the South Shore Rock Pile. Bass respond well to crawdads, swim-baits and dark colored plastics.

     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.
