Wolf Creek Dam safety.jpg

Tailrace at Wolf Creek Dam is one of the most popular trout fishing spots in Kentucky. With the spring fishing season in full swing, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers warns that waters immediately downriver from a dam can be dangerous. Last summer, sudden opening of a sluice gate overturned a boat, and a man and woman had to be fished out of this pool below the dam. The waters are stocked with trout from the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery located just northwest of the dam.
