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:

This is a place where a marker defines the outermost point where anglers fishing just inside the great Pacific Ocean congregate by the thousands in August and September in search of big chinook and coho as they stage before heading up this mighty river.

One of the most popular spots to fish this area are located just above and below a long spanning bridge. It is a shallow water fishery and when these salmon hit your bait or lure they literally “slam it,” and take off into the horizon.

There is a church on the northern shoreline that defines one of the trolling spots. You also need to be careful when crossing certain points of the river during low tide as you could find yourself sitting on a sandbar. A westerly wind and an outgoing tide could make this place rather dicey for some small boats, but many will take chance to hook into a big fall king salmon or a brawny jumpy coho.

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, March 9. 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.
