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 can be found throughout the lake but are particularly active at the West Buoy Line. Lake Wohlford cats are partial to shrimp, cut mackerel, and chicken liver.

Largemouth Bass can be found lurking around structure. Top water plugs, crank baits, and dark colored plastics are what’s working.

Crappie fishing is best in the early mornings or late afternoons. 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.
