Mike Marty, of the California Fish and Wildlife Department, hoists a net full of splashing rainbow trout as one jumps back into the holding tank, at the San Joaquin Hatchery near Fresno, Calif., Weds., Aug. 12, 2015. Tons of rainbow trout had to be rescued from the Central California fish hatchery and moved by truck to cooler lake water, sparing them from the state's relentless drought, wildlife officials said Wednesday. About 80,000 pounds of trout were scooped up from the San Joaquin Hatchery near Fresno and hauled 30 miles uphill to Shaver Lake in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Temperatures in Millerton Lake, which flow through into the hatchery on the San Joaquin River, had reached nearly 70 degrees, threatening the trout's survival. (John Walker/Fresno Bee via AP)
