Lake Wohlford is a moderately sized reservoir in Escondido about an hour north of downtown San Diego. The shoreline is lined with rocky outcroppings, and offshore rock piles provide excellent fish habitat.
Rainbow trout are heavily stocked in the winter months and are the primary angling focus during that time. But Wohlford has a history of producing big largemouth bass – one of the few lakes in the world that have produced a bass over 19 pounds. Catfish, crappie, and bluegill round out the fishing options at Wohlford.
Lake Wohlford is located at 25453 Lake Wohlford Road in Escondido.
