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. 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. Andy Meza of Chicago Illinois weighed in a 4.25# trout he caught on a night-crawler at the east end of the lake.
Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. Justin Kennedy of Valley Center caught and released an 8.30# bass Saturday on Senior Shoreline using a plastic worm. Earlier that day Mike Bonds of Escondido caught and released a 7.90# bass on jerk-bait just west of the Boat Dock. 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. Will Lambuth put together a stringer of twenty crappie Saturday the largest weighing two pounds. 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.
