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.
The first catfish stock of the season was a success and they are actively catching stocker catfish in Boat Dock Cove right now. Lake Wohlford cats prefer chicken liver, shrimp, or cut mackerel.
A good number of nice sized crappie are being caught in the early morning hours. Crappie bite mini-jigs and live golden shiners. They can be found under the cover of shade; underneath the crappie float, fishing piers, or hiding in the rocks.
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.
