Congratulations to Patrick Fagan of Seattle who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This vast Eastern Washington lake offers a wide range of fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, bluegills, crappies, rainbow trout and perch with some of the best action occurring in spring.
The name of this lake that covers 6,815 acres is of a well-known religious leader, and is crossed twice across I-90, and many say it resembles a narrow channel that is about 38 feet. It used to be well known for trout fishing, and a net-pen trout rearing project hopes to revive it back to its “good old days” of fishing roots.
The correct answer Fagan gave was Moses Lake.
“I grew up in Delaware, fishing at just about every opportunity I could find,” Fagan said. “Later, working the schedule of a young chef, up and down the East Coast, I mostly lost touch with the sport.”
“I rediscovered my love for fishing after moving to Seattle years ago,” Fagan said. “I now have a boat I moor at Shilshole during the season, and I’ve spent the last few years learning to fish the central Sound area. Last year, my friends and I had a great season, loading our freezers with salmon, Dungeness crabs and my first halibut.”
“I’m the chef/owner of a catering company, and my favorite things to cook are the fish I catch myself,” he said.
Fagan 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 19. Winners are announced the following Friday.
Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
