31st Annual Catch A Rainbow Fishing Derby

Jamestown, KY – What began as a small event in 1986 has now
blossomed into one of the largest events of its kind in the country!
This year’s 31st Annual Catch A Rainbow Kids Fishing Derby is
scheduled for Saturday, June 3, 2017 and will take place at the Wolf
Creek National Fish Hatchery.
Designed as a way to get kids outdoors and connected to fishing, this
event provides an opportunity for families to have fun with a rod and
reel! Last year’s event included approximately 1,400 participating
children! Support and planning for the event came about through
generous donations of more than a hundred volunteers and over one
hundred sponsors. The event offers fishing, prizes, trophies, food, and
much more at no charge!
The derby is hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wolf Creek
National Fish Hatchery and the Friends of Wolf Creek NFH, Inc. If you
would like to make a donation or volunteer to help with the derby,
please feel free to contact the Hatchery.
