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 is one of those last chance marine salmon fisheries that blossoms in September through October, and is located in the southern region of the coast.

For the first time since 2007, this harbor will have a one-chinook daily limit during a brief three-weeks fishery beginning in mid-September where it isn’t unusual to see some kings weighing in excess of 40 pounds caught.

This shallow water fishery (15 to 30 feet) is fished with a dropper sinker, fish flash and cut-plug herring mainly on the south side along the channel markers. These fish are all destined to three huge river systems to the north and east of the harbor. A strong coho return of almost 200,000 will also boost this fishery in the fall.

Where am I fishing?

The person to answer this question first will win a nice outdoor related book or some fishing tackle.

Please email your answer to myuasa@seattletimes.com. The winner will be announced on Friday, June 29. 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.
