RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - JUNE 18: Young Steelhead Trout at dumped from a California Department of Fish and Wildlife tanker trunk into the American River on June 18, 2014 in Rancho Cordova, California. California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials are evacuating young Steelhead Trout out of the Nimbus and American River hatcheries and into the American River due to a decline in the hatcheries' water supply from Lake Natomas. The warming weather has increased the temperature of the water and officials are concerned that the rising temperature could reach a level that is intolerable for young growing fish. Both hatcheries will be empty until October. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

It sounds like a great family bonding experience and it will be soo good for our beautiful river parkway.
