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 is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military every Saturday.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine takes debit/credit or cash (no large bills $50s or $100s) and is able to make change. At present, we still do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit.
They are still catching trout, only in lesser numbers. Gary Williams of Escondido weighed in a 4.35# trout yesterday he caught in Willow Cove on a night-crawler.
Largemouth Bass can be found around structure feasting on the abundant shad. The bass respond well to frogs, shad-raps, and dark colored plastics.
Black Crappie are being caught in the early morning hours near rock piles or by boats trolling. They are most often caught on finger jigs or live golden shiners.
Catfish can be found throughout the lake. They are fond of cut mackerel or chicken liver. The carp are currently spawning and can be found thrashing around in the shallows at the east end of the lake. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.
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.
