Congratulations to Bill Rambo of Arlington who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This Eastern Washington lake opens on March 1 for the early season trout fishery, and there are two other walk-in lakes nearby that can gain just as much recognition.

The one I’m looking for the answer to covers 120-acres, and has an arm that can also be referred to as a fourth lake. This is a selective fishery with a one-fish daily limit.

All are heavily stocked with trout that grow to enormous size, and are serious fly-fishing hound locales cruising around in tubes to get to the hot spots. The shoreline is littered with cattail and tule reeds limiting the bank fishery. As it warms up you really need to keep your eyes open for rattlesnakes.

The correct answer Rambo gave was the Nunnally Lake.

“I am a lifelong resident of Washington,” Rambo said. “I began fishing by trolling in Lake Chelan in the 1940s with my parents. I spent pre-college years fishing for sea-run cutthroat trout in Quil Ceda Creek near Marysville.”

“I fished Nunnally Lake many times in the 1970s and early 1980s,” Rambo said. “For the last 25 years, I lived on the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River in Oso where I fish with gear for winter steelhead.”

Rambo says every year he takes four to six trips to British Columbia to fly fish for trout.

“Some of my favorite places are the Babine River, Elk River and Corbett Lake,” Rambo said.

Rambo wins a nice outdoor book.

This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest 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, March 5. Winners are announced the following Friday.
