Here is the Reel Time Pacific Northwest fishing and outdoor trivia question of the week:
I start and flow into one of the most pristine places in Western Washington, and have a major watershed up on top. I’m known to cause trouble in the winter when it rains heavily, and cause major flooding along the lowlands that I flow through.
I end under a different name and in a place that is surrounded by a major city and spill out into what was once – and still is when open – a king salmon fishing haven for city dwellers.
I have salmon, steelhead, trout, and on odd-years like this one I host one of the biggest pink returns in Puget Sound. My banks are easily fishable, and it doesn’t take a three hour drive to reach some good fishing holes that are spread out along the 65-mile stretch although the upper reaches are mostly off limits.
Many years ago this place had a notorious history, and gave many the creeps about venturing into the bushes nearby because you didn’t know what you might encounter.
That was a long time ago, and a thing of the past with many young folks nowadays not even having a clue about its dark history, but those my age (46) remember it well.
Where am I fishing?
