Congratulations to Bill Satterthwaite of Snoqualmie who is this week’s winner, and answered first by saying it was the “Quinault River.”
Satterthwaite is a lifelong Western Washington resident who started fishing with his father when he was around 5 or 6 years old mainly for salmon and trout.
“My favorite place to go fishing is Ross Lake in the North Cascades National Park,” Satterthwaite said. “My wife and I go up there every year with a few friends. Just like the amazing natural beauty of the area and the peaceful serenity, as the opportunity to catch large native rainbow trout. It is really fun to see first time visitor’s faces when they arrive at Ross and see just what a spectacular treasure it truly is.”
Satterthwaite’s favorite fishing memory still has to be catching his first 7-pound pink salmon when he was 9 years old with his grandfather and father on Discovery Bay.
Satterthwaite wins a nice outdoor book.
