Permits and boat rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. Currently we are credit/debit only no cash transactions. We do not sell fishing licenses so anglers must acquire them elsewhere prior to their visit. Facial coverings are required when purchasing a fishing permit or when entering or exiting the boats or boat dock area. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors 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.

Largemouth Bass are patrolling the shallows but most are more interested in making and protecting beds than feeding. The bass can be caught using swimbaits, crawdads, or dark colored plastics

The final trout plant of the season went in Wednesday. Trout action should remain good until early May. Trout are being caught west of Senior Shoreline and are hitting inflated nightcrawlers and mice tails.

There continues to be a run on big cats. Kyle Walker of Los Angeles caught a 20.70# catfish on cut mackerel in Oakvale Cove. Lake Wohlford cats prefer mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well on both catfish and carp.

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.
