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.


Catfish can be caught throughout the lake, but are particularly active at the west buoys. We are stocking catfish this coming week and heavily in July. Lake Wohlford cats seek out chicken liver, shrimp, or cut mackerel.


Stop by the ranger station to request a dough-bait recipe that works well for both catfish and carp.


A good number of Black Crappie are being caught under the crappie float or by boaters trolling for them. Crappie bite mini-jigs and live golden shiners. They prefer cover and bite best in the early mornings or late afternoons.


Largemouth Bass can be found lurking around structure or patrolling the reed beds in hopes of ambushing their prey. Bass can be caught on crankbaits, dark colored plastics, or crawdads.


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.
