Permit and Boat Rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. We do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle, so anglers must acquire these essentials items elsewhere prior to their visit. All day motor boats are discounted to $20 for seniors (60+) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for active military every Saturday.

Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there is a ban on private water craft and equipment. Restricted equipment includes; private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.

Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. Big bass of the week belonged to Logan Kellums of Phoenix, Az. And weighed 7.00#s. Mr. Kellums caught and released his bass by employing a Texas rig off the South Shore Rock Pile.

Catfish were stocked yesterday and are currently biting in Boat Dock Cove as well as their usual haunts. Lake Wohlford cats prefer chicken liver or cut mackerel.

Crappie are being caught in the early morning amongst rocky outcroppings close to shore and by boaters trolling for them. Crappie are most often caught using shiners and a variety of mini-jigs, white ones in particular.
