     To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is a ban on private water craft 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 lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

     Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued at the Ranger Station. At present we are limited to cash transactions onlyWe do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit.

    The lake is still heavily stained from all the rain which is hampering the trout bite. Big fish of the week belonged to Ken Culkin of Oceanside who weighed in a 7.95# trout caught on sherbet powerbait off Twin Peaks.  Conditions should improve dramatically in the coming week as the water clears.

     Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. They respond well to frogs, crawdads, swim-baits, crank-baits, and dark colored plastics.

     Catfish, unlike trout, relish the muddy conditions being less reliant on sight to find food. Lake Wohlford cats like chicken liver or cut mackerel. Inquire at the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works well on both catfish and carp.

     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.

     WOHLFORD: The bass bite is fair to good with mostly 1-8 to two-pound bass on plastics, reaction baits, and nightcrawlers. Justin Peterson, Valley Center, caught and released an 8-4 bass on a black plastic in Boat Dock Cove. Crappie improved with fair action this past week on small jigs and small shiners. A few redear and bluegill are showing, and the catfish bite is improving on chicken liver and mackerel. The trout bite has slowed way down with only the odd fish still showing from deeper water along the south shoreline, Oakvale Cove, and west of the Senior Shoreline.
