The trout fishing has been excellent as a result of the consecutive plants. The biggest trout this week belonged to Daniel White of Santa Ana and weighed 7.70#s, it was caught on a pink mouse-tail in Boat Dock Cove. Jim Lepisto of San Diego came in second with a 5.70# trout caught on a rooster-tail near the West Buoy Line. Four days of rain might stain the water and slow the fishing, the coves are usually the last place to feel the effects. Mouse-tails and inflated night-crawlers have been the top baits.
Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver.
Crappie have been suspended deep feeding on bait fish near the West Buoy Line. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught using 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.
