The crappie fishing is best in the pre-dawn hours or under the cover of shade. Crappie are most often caught on finger jigs or live golden shiners.
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.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now being issued via a fully automated machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine can take cash (no large bills 50+) as well as debit or credit cards. Please take note we do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military every Saturday. The lake will re-open for weekday fishing beginning December 9th following the first trout plant.
