Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery Recognized via Regional and National Awards
Wolf Creek NFH Featured on "Kentucky Afield"
Biotech Chris Murphy isn’t normally as comfortable in front of a camera as he is behind the wheel of a stocking truck. But he’s been at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery for 18 years, and has a thing or two to share about trout stocking in Kentucky.
In fact, every trout stocked into public waters in that state has been through Murphy’s net.
Murphy helped to demonstrate the hatchery’s efforts to keep Kentucky streams filled with healthy trout on a recent episode of “Kentucky Afield,” the country’s longest-running outdoors television series.
Also featured was Wolf Creek NFH volunteer Ralph Parrish, along with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and other conservation partners and volunteers.

Interested in Volunteering?
A visit to the hatchery may inspire you to learn more about volunteering with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Volunteer inside the visitor center or help with fish production, one day per week, month, or become a full-time workcamper.
For those living on one of the campsites, hours are estimated at 20 to 24 per person, per week. For all others, any and all time is greatly appreciated! In exchange for service, volunteers receive a free campsite with water, electric and sewer hookup along with wireless internet access and laundry facilities. Propane hookup available during the winter months.
