Reel Time winner from two weeks ago hails from Seattle

Our winner from two weeks ago says my email hit his trash bin, and got unnoticed during the holidays until a few days ago so a late congratulations goes out to Nick Fisher of Seattle.

In case you forgot here was the question and answer:

While many set their winter steelhead fishing sights on well-known producing rivers such as the Cowlitz, Lewis, Skykomish, Bogachiel and Calawah, there is another one that feeds out of the Olympic Peninsula and deserves just as much attention now through February.

It lies to the east of Aberdeen and west of Elma. Think outside the box on this free flowing river that is usually fished under the “coastal pattern,” meaning if it rains then it’s time to head there and find some migrating winter steelhead.

Where am I fishing?

Answer was: Satsop River.

“I grew up fishing with family and friends in the south sound and along the Olympic Peninsula,” Fisher said.

Fisher has many fond memories of fishing along the coast in the Sol Duc and Hoh rivers, which were the favorites of his dad and brothers.

“The Satsop has produced big time over the years,” Fisher said. ” I mainly spend my time fishing and crabbing in the central sound these days.”

This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest where the winner will receive a prize that will range from books, fishing gear and other cool items from the outdoors gunnysack. A new trivia question will be posted later TODAY (Monday, Jan. 9). The winner will be announced on Friday, Jan. 13.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
