Congratulations to Bryan Mine of Black Diamond who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

We are heading south of the border for this spring fishery.

Set right in the heart of the biggest metropolitan city in the state you’ll salivate as you drive by, and see the armada of boats trolling for spring chinook. The hot spot for this fishery has always been a place just north of the 205 freeway.

Since the “watch” began back in February and through early April this river has been spewing out plenty of brown, muddy water making it difficult to fish, but now things have cleared up and fishing has been fairly good. The springer forecast is 83,400 with many of those being the bigger five-year-old bruisers.

The correct answer Mine gave was Willamette River.

“I got hooked into fishing when my family would make an annual trip every summer up to Sheridan Lake Resort in British Columbia,” Mine said. “I would go out with my grandfather and father daily from sunrise to sunset. I used to fish with Powerbait with my grandfather when I was younger, but my preferred method was fly fishing, which my father really got me into.”

“I still enjoy it to this day and head out on my lake I live on every calm evening I can, and cast a dry fly or some Powerbait with my fiance to catch the trout rising,” he said. “I am going to try to hit the Yakima River again this summer for fly fishing, which I haven’t been to in a couple years.”

Mine has really gotten into ocean fishing recently for salmon with his future father-in-law Ron, and best friend Josh out at Sekiu and Neah Bay.

Mine hopes to incorporate the two together soon and catch a king on a fly rod in the open ocean.”

Mine 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 21. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
