It is with mixed feelings, I have made the decision, to POSTPONE, the 34th Annual Catch A Rainbow Kids Fishing Derby scheduled for June 6, 2020, at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery.
Due to federal, state and local guidelines in place for COVID-19, and with the utmost consideration for the health and well being of the public, volunteers and staff, this is the safest decision for all.
It was very hard to postpone an event that has been going for 34 years and enjoyed by so many people. Catch A Rainbow typically has around 1,400 participants, ages 1-15. Including volunteers, parents, etc. the entire crowd is around 3,500. Participants attend from many communities across Kentucky, as well as many other states.
