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.

Catfish action has been a little sluggish. The lake has risen several feet in the last couple of weeks which could mean there is a surplus of food for the catfish to forage. Lake Wohlford cats respond well to cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well on both catfish and carp.

Small to medium sized bass being reported mostly around structure. The bass are hitting plastic worms, chatter-baits and jerk-baits.

Still good numbers of crappie being reported. Crappie prefer live golden shiners or mini-jigs.

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.
