Hatchery Creek

Return to Waterbodies

Hatchery Creek is a man-made stream a little over 1 mile long associated with Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery. It has recently been improved as part of a joint effort with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U. S. Corps of Engineers. It is divided into two sections, an upper park-like section where anglers can keep up to 5 trout and a lower section which is catch and release only.
