Annual Wounded Warriors Fishing Event at Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery and the Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery hosted the seventh annual Wounded Warriors Fishing Event on September 11, 2018, for 20 American servicemen and servicewomen. The event began at 5:30 a.m. Participants received t-shirts, breakfast, and snacks before departing to Lake Cumberland for a morning of striped bass fishing. During the afternoon, the veterans enjoyed a catered barbeque lunch, a21-gun-salute provided by the local Disabled American Veterans, and a goody bag from the Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery. Later, everyone went trout fishing at Hatchery Creek. Some veterans were given a class in fly fishing led by Wolf Creek volunteer Mark Lamberth. This event is always a huge success, and the participants, staff members, and volunteers leave with renewed spirits.
