Permits and boat rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. We are credit/debit only, no cash transactions. We do not sell fishing licenses so anglers must obtain them elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering half price motor boats to seniors on Tuesdays & Thursdays and to active military every Saturday.


In order to protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels there is a ban on private watercraft 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.


Those trout that are left are languishing in the shallows due to the warm water. William Drieling of Oceanside had big fish of the past week with his 8.80# trout caught on an atomic teaser on Senior Shoreline. Mini-jigs, atomic teasers, and kastmasters have been getting the best results.


The first catfish stock of the season is scheduled for this coming week. Lake Wohlford cats like chicken liver, shrimp, or cut mackerel.


Crappie are being caught in small numbers. Crappie bite mini-jigs and live golden shiners. They prefer the cover of shade and typically only come in close early in the morning or late in the day.


Bass are in tight to shore gorging themselves on the plentiful shad. Bass respond well to shad-raps, senko worms, and swim baits.


Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. Contest winners must legally catch their fish at Lake Wohlford and have it weighed in by a Wohlford Ranger on our scale. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
