Dirty Jobs, I have done that one.

Updated: Sep 6, 2021

My dad was a fish hatchery manager, which meant that I got to live along a bunch of cool rivers, but I would have to pitch in and help from time to time, feeding, spawning, tagging, cleaning out the ponds, among other things. Flipping through the channels awhile ago I noticed a place that I had been before… Unfortunately it was on an episode of Dirty Jobs, “Rocky Reach Dam” (season 4, episode 13). About 29 minutes in Mike goes to a fish hatchery that my dad managed years ago. I never tagged fish how they are doing now. But I have been in those ponds. I used a fire hose to spray the poo, goo, and dead fish out of those ponds, where I learned to breath through my nose rather than my mouth really quickly (think splash damage)! Links to episode Netflix, YouTube, DiscoveryPlus. Obviously not something I put on my resume but pretty cool to see that on the tube.
