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.
Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and 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 we are limited to cash transactions only. We do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transitional period.
The trout bite is fair at present with the best results coming from the southern shore. Look for a marked improvement following Wednesday’s double plant. The Department of Fish and Wildlife continues to supplement the trout population with small plants. Top baits are powerbait (rainbow or green), or inflated night-crawlers dipped in garlic sauce.
Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. The re-appearance of trout in the lake makes this an excellent time for swim-baits.
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.
