Field Trip: Cole M. Rivers Fish Hatchery

So we took our field trip to the fish hatchery today. As excited as the boys were to be there, I think Mike was even MORE excited! He acted like a six year old boy (not in a bad way, though). Running from pool to pool to view everything he possibly could. lol I think we'll have to go earlier in the season, though, so we can see more in the fish ladder and watch them incubating the eggs and all their activities they do.

Feeding frenzy! They gave the boys a few large handfuls of fish food and the boys got to feed the fish.

Fish would come barrelling out of the pipe here, but since my brain and my trigger finger don't communicate with each other that quickly, I never got the shot of the fish coming out.

The boys loved this tank because all you could see was a bunch of fins above the surface and it looked like a tank full of tiny sharks. lol

In the upper left of the monitor you can sort of see a fish. This was a monitor that connected to a camera in the fish ladder so visitors could see some of the fish struggling to get up the ladder.

The image on the left of the monitor is a fish face.

If you look from the middle of the top of the picture, you will see a white steak going towards the middle. That's a fish. I couldn't ever get the entire fish in my viewer in time. But he was HUGE.

Look for the white streaks. Those are more fish.

More feeding frenzies!
