  • After seeing the positive reviews for the Hatchery on TripAdvisor before our visit to Lake Cumberland, we decided we would visit and we were definitely pleased. This is a great place to go for all age...  more »
  • I took the kids to visit here - but after about 20 minutes they were bored, so we had to move on! But there is an inside exhibit as well. 
  • This is a federal facility. They take eggs from trout and other species of fish and fertilize the eggs and raise the fish in large indoor and outdoor tanks till the fish are ready to release into lake...  more »

  • Fun place to visit for folks of any age. Admission is free! Watch an 8 minute video that introduces the viewer to Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery. Walk through the visitors center fish exhibits of 3- 800 gallon aquariums. Look up and you will see a large variety of local animals preserved in a lifelike environment such as deer, fox, opposum, squirels, raccoons and more. Moving deeper into the center, enjoy the reptile exhibits with snakes, turtle and frogs. Leaving the visitors center you can walk across to the hatchery building where trout eggs are hatched into sac fry. You will may see fish at each stage of their life. Leaving the hatchery building, you walk into the raceways that hold fingerling sized trout through adult sized with some reach more than 12 inches. Wolf Creek may have as many as 1.8 million fish on site at any one time. Just behind the raceways, is the new Hatchery Creek that is stocked with trout every other day. Fishermen may catch and keep up to 5 trout when fishing in Upper Hatchery Creek. The Lower Hatchery Creek is for catch and release only.
  • This location has an education center that provides more information about the hatchery and aquarium-style tanks with fish for young kids to identify. The center also has an active honey bee hive. Wolf Creek also has a gift shop and you can feed the fish outside as well. All of the trout stocked in Kentucky comes from Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery.
  • Having a wonderful time! :)
  • Very well done.
