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.

The trout fishing has slowed a bit, but are still being caught particularly from the southern shore. Look for the pace to quicken with Wednesday’s upcoming plant. Mousetails, powerbait, and inflated nightcrawlers are what’s working.

Largemouth bass are active but primarily in deeper water. Dark colored plastics, swimbaits, and trout plugs are all solid options.

Crappie are biting in numbers, but not tight to shore. The best results have come by boaters who either locate a school suspended in one of their deeper haunts or troll for them. Crappie respond best to golden shiners or mini jigs.

Catfish can be found throughout the lake and favor cut-mackerel or chicken liver.

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.
