THE FISH HATCHERY MiweekBlue Water Wed. Reflect

For Midweek Blues,  Watery Wednesday, and Weekend Reflections please scroll down to the end.
Have been burning too much midnight oil lately, because of two new big project,so I'll blog at a slower pace. Hope you leave your comments, even though I won't have time to give my personal reply as usual, till the bulk of the projects are done:)

On a perfect 60 degree weather day
The sun was shining with just a little breeze,
we were walking along the American river.
Only a few came by

They should have asked him, but they asked us:)
if the fish were biting today

Guess the fish hatchery about 200 feet back
was their inspiration to catch their own! 

The biggest rainbow trout lounged just beneath the sign
"Keep hands out of water"
Good that the sign was there.
For the little kiddies it seemed extremely difficult not to put their hands in the water:)
For Weekend Reflections, hosted by James.

Wonderful series from the fish hatchery! I like the last shot!

That is a lot of fish. It would have been difficult for me to keep my hands out of the water too.

Woody said...

Nice blues and reflections (for some reason, it seems backwards). That guy fishing has got to be cold!

Rudee said...

I love the photo of the warning and that rainbow trout.

Dimple said...

Nice series of shots. I like the last two best!

I'd love to go fishing if there were as many fishes as that! Have you decided what to paint next? Hope you can also check out my entry . Thank you!

Some peaceful images there, Jeannette. I think my favorite is peeking at the river through the branches loaded with spring buds.
You're right about kids and water - until you ask them to wash their hands!

EG Wow said...

How nice to see spring emerging! Best of luck with your projects!

Dianne said...

I love the fisherman so deep in the water
lovely shot

Ebie said...

Aha! And you are left handed.

I did not expect a lot of fish. Next time if we travel to the Eastern Sierra, we will visit the hatchery.

Lovely pictures -- haven't been to a fish hatchery for years, but we used to visit some pretty often when we lived in the Pac. NW.

Good luck on your bit projectS!!

I love the colors of rainbow trout and your reflection is just divine... Keep hands out of water! indeed, good advice!

Don't work too hard... Happy Easter to you!


Clytie said...

Hah! I would have been tempted to put my hands in the water as well!

James said...

The photo with the reflection and the fish is really cool! 60F sounds great. It was 85F here and thats too hot for me.

We are packing and I can't wait for the move to be over. :)
