Congratulations to Jim Berger of Snoqualmie Valley who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This is one of the most furthest points in Washington where spring chinook are caught.
It isn’t a very big river, and a great return of spring chinook put this place on the state’s fishing grid back in the 1990s.
It still draws a big crowd of anglers every May and early June, and the best fishing is the two-mile stretch from the fish hatchery down to the mouth.
Many will make a pit stop on their way home to the west side in the nearby Bavarian-themed town for a brat and cool refreshments.
The correct answer Berger gave was Icicle River.
“My dad took me and my brother fishing as a kid on lakes in the Puget Sound region,” Berger said. “After he moved to Minnesota, he really got involved in walleye and northern pike fishing. On visits, we would go fishing and that got me hooked for good.”
“I mostly fish the Snoqualmie, Skykomish (and) Snohomish river system as I live in the Snoqualmie Valley,” Berger said. “I also enjoy the Sound for salmon whenever I get the chance and trout fishing anywhere.”
Berger wins a nice outdoors prize.
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, May 14. Winners are announced the following Friday.
Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
