Excellent Trout Fishing
Wohlford Lake - Escondido, CA (San Diego County)
by Wohlford Lake Staff
The trout fishing has been excellent as a result of the consecutive plants. Thursday more fish are slated to go in with a 25% increase in the usual plant size. The biggest trout this week belonged to Jesse Tran of San Diego and weighed 9.40#s. The trout appear to be frequenting deeper water due to the presence of baitfish there. Mouse-tails and inflated night-crawlers have been the top baits.
Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver.
Crappie are being caught at the West Buoy Line. Samuel Rodriguez of Valley Center weighed in a 2.20# crappie, one of twenty, he caught on golden shiners at the West Buoys. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught using finger jigs or live golden shiners.
