"Hooked on Fishing... Not on Drugs!"


The 35th Annual Catch a Rainbow Kids Fishing Derby 

Will be:

Saturday, June 3, 2023 8:00am-3:00pm CST

Catch A Rainbow Kids Fishing Derby is scheduled for June 3, 2023.

Therefore, we need help. Anyone willing to at least temporarily join the Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery to help make this wonderful event happen this year, please message us or call at 270-343-3797 Ext. 5. We need help asking for donations and possibly doing fundraisers to fund the event and we need several to help out with the various activities of the day.

Not familiar with Catch a Rainbow? It's a FREE event at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery for kids up to age 15. The hatchery and the Friends group partner together, along with our sponsors, to make this amazing day possible.

 We usually have around 1,500 registered participants and around 3,500 people in attendance. Kids fish Hatchery Creek during time slots for their age group and are awarded prizes for largest fish as well as door prizes. We feed everyone free hotdogs, snow cones, and drinks.

There are other activities available while they wait their turn to fish, such as: archery, face painting, visiting Smokey Bear, meet our Fish mascot and casting competitions.

This has been an annual tradition in Russell County, with participants from across the country, for over 30 years. We need extra help to make this happen.

Please reach out to us if you are interested. And if you are a previous sponsor, please go ahead and contact us about your donation. We are extremely short handed and may not be able to visit everywhere in person this year.

Help us to help kids get hooked on fishing, not on drugs!
