Trout fishing is fading away as the water temperature
rises.Anglers fishing in Trout Cove and
off Jack Creek Pier are still hanging a fish or two on their stringers in the
AM hours.The trout have moved deeper
and working baits on the bottom has proved most productive.
The bass have been running on the cold side.This may be due to some very light pressure
on the bass over the past week.The fish
are male in the two to four pound range.The plastics are working best. No
notable bass were reported to the rangers this week.
A few bluegill are popping up
around the lake.The majority are being
seen in the Catfish Cove area near the cattails.Try using mealworms or small pieces of night
crawler as bait.
Action for catfish has been picking up the past
week.The majority of the fish are being
caught out at the Buoy Line.Those using
mackerel are having the best luck but chicken livers and shrimp are also
We have just begun the Night Catfishing
Program as of last night, June 16th.We
are open till effective tomorrow.The lake will have been stocked with 3000
pounds of catfish to kick off the season.The limit is still five catfish per angler.The next catfish stock will be on June 29th,
consisting of 2000 pounds.

Catfish action is still very good, hitting on chicken
liver and cut mackerel.The best Catfish
area has been the very shallow weed beds at the east end of LakeWohlford.Boaters need to row into those shallows in order to prevent prop damage
and motor problems. Our first Channel Catfish plant [ 2,000
lbs ] was this past Tuesday.
Bluegill have picked up around the shoreline, hitting on
red worms and meal worms.
Bass of the week goes to Jim Johnson of SolanaBeach who caught a 6#0
Bass on a plastic worm, near Murphy's Rock. Other catches were Al Littlejohn of
Diego, 4#8 Bass, on a Shiner at Oakvale
LakeWohlford will remain open 7 days a week
through September 12, 2004.So come on out to LakeWohlford for your recreational needs and
bring the family!

Dave Larson of Oceanside found excellent fishing near the
end of Oceanside Boulevard, taking a 5-1/2 pound spotfin croaker as well as about a dozen corbina, all on mussel.Stories like Dave's are pretty common at the moment.Large spotfin are
being landed at the beaches, Oceanside Pier and OceansideHarbor.Most corbina are caught on sand crabs, but
mussel and bloodworms are equally effective.Brian Dorman is leading the June Croaker Derby at Pacific Coast Bait and
Tackle with a 7 pound, 4 ounce giant.
