The Wolftever Creek Boat Ramp is one of the Chattanooga area’s most heavily used public water accesses and serves thousands of anglers and recreational boaters annually.

 

The first 100 youth (ages 2- 15) at the event will receive a fishing rod and reel, compliments of Pure Fishing. A picnic-style lunch will be provided to all attendees, while supplies last.

 

Wolftever Creek Boat Ramp is at 8002 TN-58, Harrison, Tn. 37341.

 

Through the USA’s Work Boots on the Ground conservation program, union volunteers representing Auto Workers Local 42, Electrical Workers Local 175, Ironworkers Local 704 and Sheet Metal Workers Local 5 built a new courtesy pier and renovated a fishing pier at the Wolftever Creek Boat Ramp to improve year-round public access to Harrison Bay and Lake Chickamauga. Many of those volunteers will be at the fishing event to assist youth and help pass on America’s outdoor heritage.
