 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 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.

Catfish are being caught throughout the lake, but are especially active at the west buoys and in Oakvale Cove. Lake Wohlford cats prefer chicken liver or cut mackerel. Drop by the ranger station to pick up a dough-bait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.

Largemouth bass can be found around structure. Bass respond well to crawdads, frogs, and dark colored plastics.

Crappie are being caught in modest numbers by boaters trolling for them. They are most often caught on mini-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
