Permits and boat rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. Currently we are credit/debit only. 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 will re-open seven days a week in mid-December following the first trout plant.

Facial coverings are required when purchasing a fishing permit or when entering or exiting the boats or boat dock area. Ongoing health protocols dictate that only half of our boat fleet is available for rent on any given day. Visitors desiring a boat should arrive early because they sell out quickly.

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.

Catfish are biting at the West Buoy Line. Lake Wohlford cats love cut mackerel or chicken liver.

Largemouth bass are to be found lurking around structure and are hitting rattle traps, swimbaits, and assorted dark colored plastics.

Crappie are active along the north shore 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.
