  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.

Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine can take cash (no large bills 50+) as well as debit or credit cards. Please take note we do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military every Saturday. The lake will re-open for weekday fishing beginning December 9th following the first trout plant.

Catfish are biting near the west buoy line. Chicken liver or cut mackerel are two of the most preferred baits for catfish. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.

Largemouth Bass can be found hiding in the bulrushes or prowling the rock piles in search of prey. The bass respond well to frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.

The crappie fishing is best in the pre-dawn hours or under the cover of shade. Crappie are most often caught on finger jigs or live golden shiners.

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.
