Lake Wohlford Fish Report – 12/2/17

  • Content Ad
  • The opening of trout season is next Saturday December 9th. The lake will be open weekdays beginning Monday Dec 11th. Weekday fishing also means the return of the popular $20 motor boats for seniors on Tuesday and Thursdays. We are getting our trout from a new hatchery this year Calaveras Trout Farm in Northern California. We are loaded and ready for bear with 12,000 lbs. of rainbow trout set to be planted in less than a month’s time. So make plans to come and join us this winter for what promises to be another great season.

    Largemouth bass can be found lurking around structure. With the re-introduction of trout just around the corner this an excellent time to dust off those swimbaits in the hopes of landing a big one.

    Crappie can be found in the early morning hours near the cover of shade or in rocky outcroppings. They respond best to finger jigs or live golden shiners.
