Reel Time trivia winner hails from Seattle

Congratulations to Ryan McFarland of Seattle who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This small lake near Edmonds has a lot to offer for early season trout anglers, and then provides action for bass and perch through the summer as well as brown bullhead catfish at night.

There is a state Fish and Wildlife boat ramp and access on the north end of this 26-acre lake. The lake in March and April got a rainbow trout plant of 3,021 in March and April.

Opening day success on April 28 produced a 1.73 fish per rod average for 11 anglers with 19 fish kept, but one lucky angler caught and released 50 trout.

The correct answer McFarland gave was Lake Stickney.

“I grew up in Southern Oregon near the Rogue River, and with my dad and brother caught a lot of salmon each spring,” McFarland said. “I go back home every June to fish with my dad and one of the Upper Rogue’s most tenured, and enjoyable, drift boat fishing guides, Vern Grieves.”

McFarland also enjoys fishing Oregon’s Umpqua River system for winter steelhead and is getting dialed in on fishing for coho in Forks on northern Olympic coast during the fall.

“My brother and I have a fishing boat at Shilshole, and we enjoy crabbing, shrimping, and fishing for salmon with friends and family,” he said. “We first tried for halibut last year and caught a small one. So far, Puget Sound lingcod have eluded me. Although less of a focus, I like getting out on a couple of the smaller local lakes to fish as well. My girlfriend is crazy for catfish, so I’m always on the lookout for nearby lakes, like Stickney, where a chicken liver might produce.”

McFarland 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 28. Winners are announced the following Friday.
