Congratulations to Don Bogucki of Woodinville who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner, and answered first by saying it was the “Lake Nahwatzel.”
“It is strange that I even got started fishing at all,” Bogucki said. “No one in my family goes fishing.”
As a kid Bogucki lived in Yakima his neighbor got him started by fishing at Sportsman’s Park in Yakima.
“Next I fished the Naches River,” he said. “In my college years I’d hike to Lake Blanc near Index to camp and fish.”
Bogucki also worked summers in Glacier National Park, and caught brook trout, grayling, whitefish and lake trout, but spent most of the time hiking, climbing and camping.
He’s caught steelhead in the Skykomish River, sturgeon in the Columba River and rainbow trout in Dry Falls.
“The last few years I’ve been concentrating on cutthroat fishing in Lake Washington out of my 15 foot boat due to the price of gasoline,” Bogucki said. “I prefer to fish in small lake with my seven foot pram trolling a fly that I tied. But, I will use whatever it takes to catch fish. I hate to use a down rigger, but if that what it takes to catch fish, I will use it especially for salmon.”
Bogucki wins a nice outdoor book.
This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest through the summer and early fall where the winner who answers the question first will receive an outdoor prize that will range from books, Berkley bait, lures and other nifty items from the outdoors gunnysack.
The next trivia question will posted on Monday, Oct. 24. Winners are announced the following Friday.
