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.


Lake Wohlford will be open Labor Day, but the entire facility will be closed to the public on weekdays immediately following Labor Day. We will re-open for weekday use at the beginning of trout season in mid-December.


Catfish have been biting throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer chicken liver, shrimp, or cut mackerel.


Crappie are being caught in small numbers in the early morning or late afternoon. They are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.


The bass are active with small to medium sized bass hitting frequently on crawdads, shad raps, swimbaits, and dark colored plastics.


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.
