Here is the Reel Time Pacific Northwest fishing and outdoor trivia question of the week:
First hint: This productive fall salmon fishery is not located in Washington, but is within a five hours drive from Seattle. It has five tributaries with two being the biggest, and the most productive.
Many of the kings are very large, and each fall you’ll hear about some 50-plus pounders caught and on some years there will be one in the 60 pound range caught.
The bar from the ocean can get really nasty in the fall and the Coast Guard will post warnings when conditions aren’t ideal for boaters to venture out. There have been some pretty bad boating accidents when anglers heed the advice, and the north jetty near its end is submerged and the south jetty area can both be dangerous spots for boaters.
With that said this place lures thousands of anglers in search of hefty sized fall kings and coho, and it’s a crowded fishery and you use tactics similar to Buoy-10 at the Columbia River mouth.
Where am I fishing?
The person to answer this question first will win a nice outdoor related book.
Please email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced on Friday, Sept. 23. Be sure to include an email plus phone number so we can ensure you’ll get your prize.
This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest through October and possibly longer where the winner will receive a prize that will range from books, fishing gear and other cool items from the outdoors gunnysack.
