Hatchery In Danger

The Louisville Courier-Journal writes that an emergency draw down of Lake Cumberland in Kentucky may put the Wolf Creek Fish Hatchery in jeopardy.

There are a lot of unknowns," hatchery manager James Gray said. "If we have a hot, dry year, then we'll probably be in pretty good shape. If we have a wet, rainy year, we could be in trouble.
"Our goal right now is to continue normal operating procedure and monitor the situation. We'll just have to deal with things as they happen."
