Wohler Bridge Fishing Access is a seasonal boat ramp below the historic truss bridge on the Russian River in Forestville. 

Use of the ramp is available October 1 through May 15 with the purchase of an annual fishing access permit ($45 recreational or $75 commercial with gate key included.) The key allows gate access to ramps at both Wohler Bridge and nearby  Steelhead Beach.

The Wohler Bridge launch provides for the loading and off-loading of small craft. Four-wheel drive vehicles are recommended. A short portage is required from the ramp to the river.

The launch has a chemical toilet but no drinking water.
