Lake will soon close on weekdays

Lake Wohlford park will be closed weekdays beginning the day after Labor Day and throughout the fall.

The last plant of Channel Catfish was Friday, August 19. The next plant will be of trout — in December.

To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is still 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.

Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesdays 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. Right now they are limited to cash transactions only. A vending machine is on order that, when installed, will offer more payment options.

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.
