Permit and Boat Rentals are sold via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. At present, we do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle, so anglers must acquire these essential items elsewhere prior to their visit. All day motor boats are discounted to $20 for active military every Saturday.
Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there is a ban on private water craft and equipment. Restricted equipment includes; private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.
During the autumn months we are closed weekdays. The park is tentatively scheduled to re-open for weekday fishing and general recreation beginning December 10th, as always, we remain open on the weekends.
Catfish are being 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 well for both catfish and carp.
Bass can be found around structure and respond well to shad raps, frogs, and dark colored plastics.
Crappie fishing has been decent with mostly smaller fish being caught in, and around, Boat Dock Cove. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught using finger jigs or live golden shiners. They bite best in the predawn hours.
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.
