To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is still 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.
Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued at the Ranger Station. At present, unfortunately, we are limited to cash transactions only. A vending machine is being installed that will offer more payment options. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transitional period. The park will be closed weekdays throughout fall re-opening for weekday fishing in December with the first trout plant.
Catfish can be caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works wonders on catfish, as well as carp.
Crappie are caught most often in the early morning, under the cover of shadows, using live golden shiners or mini-jigs.
Largemouth bass can be found lurking around structure. Justin Kennedy of Valley Center caught & released a 9.90# bass on a swimbait thrown from Senior Shoreline Saturday afternoon. The bass are hitting frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.
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.
