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 bay in Puget Sound used to house rows and rows of boathouses back in the 1930s-40s of salmon fishing’s hey days.

All one had to do was row or if you could afford it motor out in front of the boathouses between two major waterways that flowed from hillsides of the Cascade mountains, and catch a big king salmon.

There is one of the oldest derbies that still holds it contest in this bay that lies in front of a major city, but chinook runs have now dwindled to the point where there is no fishing during the peak summer months.

On odd years this bay is now flooded with millions of pink salmon that have found a new home in the river above it. Coho net pens still fuel some fishing during the summer in the outer portions of the bay.

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 23. 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.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
