    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.

The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military every Saturday.

Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine takes debit/credit or cash. At present, we still do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit.

The second catfish plant of the season took place yesterday around noon and went off without a hitch. We have yet to see the full benefits of the plant. 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 lurking around structure. The bass respond well to frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.

Black Crappie are being caught under the cover of shade in Boat Dock Cove and by boats trolling or drifting. 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.
