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/park will close weekdays, but remain open on weekends beginning this Tuesday Sept.5th re-opening for weekday use in December with the opening of trout season.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now issued via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine takes debit/credit or cash. We do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military every Saturday.
Catfish can be caught throughout the lake. Chicken liver or cut mackerel are two of the most preferred baits for catfish.
Largemouth Bass lurk around structure. The bass respond well to frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics.
The crappie fishing is best in the early morning hours near the cover of shade or in rocky outcroppings. 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.
