It’s Reel Time trivia so put on your fishing thinking cap

Here is the Reel Time Pacific Northwest fishing and outdoor trivia question of the week:

The one thing that makes this northern county lake such a boon for kokanee populations is the excellent thermocline and 160-foot depth at its deepest section.

It is a natural lake that covers more than 1,000 acres, and those huge schools of kokanee landlocked salmon bite best in spring time and early summer, and are some of the most tasty eating fish around.

The fishing pressure is extremely light and it is a very under-fished year-round lake. The lake also get a hefty plant of rainbow trout in the spring, and has a wide variety of other warm-water fish species.

The key to success at this lake is hitting it early in the morning as the water skiers and jet skiers come out in force during the day time, and summer time can be maddening for anglers looking for a piece of solitude. Many will get over it quickly once they figure out how well the kokanee fishery produces.

Where am I fishing?

The person to answer this question first will win a nice outdoor related book.

Please email your answer to myuasa@seattletimes.com. The winner will be announced on Friday, Jan. 27. 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 where the winner will receive a prize that will range from books, fishing gear and other cool items from the outdoors gunnysack.
